How can I get involved in the World Parks Congress? (Guest post)

The World Parks Congress 2014 is being held in Sydney this year from 12-19 November. The Congress is a landmark global forum on parks and protected areas held once every 10 years.  This time the theme is Parks, Planet, People: inspiring solutions

The Congress program consists of eight concurrent streams, one of which is Improving Health and Wellbeing: Healthy Parks Healthy People. This stream is being led by Parks Victoria and US National Park Service.

We are thrilled to be working with David to spread the Healthy Parks Healthy People message across Australia and around the world. And in particular the message that parks are places for everyone - access for all. 

We are going to be reaching out to a whole range of people to showcase the TrailRiders and their benefits, as well as encouraging practical action to see them made available in other places around Australia and the world.
There are several ways that interested people can get involved in the Congress, either by coming along as a delegate, being involved as a volunteer or getting involved online.

Find out how you can get involved This is so exciting and we look forward to seeing you all there!
