‘Respect the Outdoors’ campaign – we need your help to amplify the campaign.
Our Dropbox showcase includes campaign materials for download, customising and sharing.
Downloadable materials include
- Social assets for Facebook & Twitter
- Non-Government branded social asset templates (for stakeholders to insert their own logo instead if desired)
- Poster images
- A basic campaign toolkit, providing a campaign overview, key messages, and guidance for using the assets on social media.
Our campaign encourages people to responsibly dispose of PPE (face coverings and gloves), take their litter home and follow the Countryside code. They key messages we want to promote are:
- Don’t destroy what you’ve come to enjoy
- Take your litter home to throw away or recycle
- Don’t have barbecues or fires in the countryside
- Follow the Countryside Code
- Keep your dog on a lead
- Stick to footpaths and follow local signs
- Respectlocal farmers and communities
- Protectour outdoor spaces
- Throw your PPE (gloves and face coverings) in the bin – not the recycling
- Further detail about how to access green spaces safely can be found on GOV.UK: https://www.gov.uk/guidance/coronavirus-covid-19-advice-on-accessing-green-spaces-safely
- You can read the Countryside Code in full on UK.
Alongside the toolkit, we’ve been pushing ahead with the following in recent weeks:
