Protect Our Winters

Protect Our Winters UK was founded in 2017 by a team of UK outdoor enthusiasts to mobilise the UK outdoor sports community to accelerate our transition to a carbon neutral society and reduce our individual and collective carbon footprints.

Protect Our Winters are focussed on creating an environment that encourages people to act to combat the climate crisis, however big or small those actions may be.

The warming of our planet undermines the health, safety, security and livelihoods of many in drastic and extreme ways, but it also has to potential to undermine significant facet of the lives of many more – we all have a responsibility to act.
