Description

The Nature-Based Outdoor Economy
Victoria's Future in the Outdoors

Australia’s relationship with the great outdoors has been long and varied. In Victoria, the nature-based outdoor activity sector is a larger part of the economy than most of us realise.

The 2016 Nature-Based Outdoor Economy Report commissioned by Sport and Recreation Victoria, revealing that nature-based outdoor activities contribute more to Victoria’s economy than the AFL.

Whether it’s hiking in a national park, training to become a lifesaver, retreating into the forest for a yoga class, or camping under the night sky, this is all contributing towards Victoria’s nature-based outdoor economy.

Discover more about one of Victoria’s most lucrative sectors and how it’s contributing towards and supporting jobs, the healthcare system, and other recreation benefits, in this Game Changers Conversation.

Presented in partnership with VU's Institute of Sport and Exercise Science.



Speakers
