The BMC isn’t just for climbers – that’s the message behind a new push to raise awareness of the BMC’s work for hill walkers and its stance on a range of topical issues affecting hill walkers.

Children and young people need to get outdoors for their physical, emotional and intellectual well-being. The ability to pay for outdoor clothing and equipment is often cited as a reason for non-participation. First impressions count and It’s hard to enjoy your early experiences in the outdoors when you’re cold, wet and uncomfortable. Having the right clothing and equipment helps to ensure that outdoor experiences are safe and enjoyable.
In wardrobes, attics and garages, long forgotten items of outdoor clothing and equipment are gathering dust. The great outdoors is where they belong.

A new film from the Polished Project team has been released to promote the John Muir Trust Award. The team of Lukasz Warzecha and Wojtek Kozakiewicz started filming in May and travelled throughout Scotland, The Lake District and the Peak District - as well as London, to complete the film which has just gone live, in both full and shortened versions, on the John Muir Trust's website.

The Government and Mayor of London have today launched a team effort to promote physical activity across the country - ensuring it is a lasting legacy of London 2012 and part of a long term vision for a fitter nation.

‘Moving More,  Living More’ builds on learning from the world’s most active countries, that action on physical activity needs to be a long term effort and is best tackled through a team approach across government and all sectors. The Britain on Foot campaign, through Outdoor Industries Association CEO Andrew Denton, has been heavily involved in lobbying Government for a comprehensive approach to reducing inactivity and promoting other physical activities in addition to sport. The new initiative looks at all the benefits from increasing activity participation from economic benefits to health benefits and is seen as a major step forward for the Britain on Foot campaign.
