The project focused in the inclusion of disadvantaged people and environment preservation. The main ideas of this multilateral meeting were; fight against discrimination, prejudices and stereotypes that people in risk of social exclusion (mainly people with learning and social disabilities) suffer in their nearest environment, the promotion of a proactive attitude to support environment preservation and the fight against global warming effects, provide new tools to improve leisure time management throughout the promotion of outdoor activities as an attractive tool of non formal education due to the recreational and fun character of that activities. Hiking, trekking, environmental interpretation and photography were some of the activities made by this group to contribute to achieve the objectives of the project.
