For Wild Places
Represented by Hilary McAllister, Director
How does your organisation address climate change?
For Wild Places is dedicated to protecting wild places of cultural and environmental significance from destructive industries such as logging and fossil fuel extraction. Through engaging and connecting people with the outdoors, For Wild Places activates the trail running and wider outdoors community to defend the wild places in their community and country through fundraising, creating awareness, and treading more lightly on the planet. Long term, For Wild Places aims to make the outdoor competitive sporting space more respectful of the lands upon which events are held, recognising and supporting Traditional Owners, leaving no trace, and hosting single-use free, carbon offset events.
What is your organisation doing to create a better future?
For Wild Places hopes to lead the outdoors space in creating carbon-neutral events which benefit the lands and Traditional Owners upon which the event is held. We are committed to offsetting our digital footprint annually, minimising merchandise, offering offsets to event participants, and working towards setting a new responsible events standard in the trail running world. We will continue to work alongside affiliate climate and outdoors groups to provide resources and education to promote positive policy change.
