Helping the Hills 13/14th Sept
This is an MI sponsored conference that seems valuable. The following is their ad:

Ireland has tremendous potential for walking and other outdoor recreation activities, but wise management is required to deliver quality recreation experiences and long-term benefit.

Many of Ireland’s mountains are suffering the effects of erosion, whether through increased recreational activity or natural processes, or indeed a combination of these. As these areas have a high conservation value, it’s important to respond appropriately.

Helping the Hills is a conference on the management of upland paths, hosted by Mountaineering Ireland and taking place at Glendalough, Co. Wicklow on Thursday 13th – Friday 14th September.

The programme incorporates presentations, workshops and site visits. The conference will be jointly opened by Minister Jimmy Deenihan TD, Minister for Arts, Heritage and the Gaeltacht and Minister Alex Attwood MLA, Minister for the Environment (NI). There’s a strong line-up of speakers, ready to share the lessons from their work in the management of recreation and upland paths.

This event should be of interest and value to those involved in the promotion, funding and management of outdoor recreation, local authorities, land managers, participants in outdoor recreation and all those with an interest in the sustainable management of upland areas.

Conference fee is just €80, for full programme and online booking, go to www.helpingthehills.ie.
