Let our leaders know how much we care about America’s Great Outdoors.
Great Outdoors America Week (GO Week) is the preeminent event celebrating our collective connection to the great outdoors while advocating for its future. As one of the largest annual conservation and outdoor focused events in Washington DC, GO Week raises awareness around outdoors issues, brings together hundreds of diverse organizations and activists to meet with lawmakers and administrators to advocate for our outdoor way-of-life.
The connection to our nation’s economy
GO Week 2013 will focus on “Conservation and the Outdoor Economy.” Built on the conservation infrastructure of our nation’s protected public lands and America’s love of these special places, the outdoor economy is one of our nation’s strongest economic segments. Moreover, conserving the future of America’s Great Outdoors addresses larger economic issues, and plays a critical role in the ongoing health of our communities especially with young people.
If you care about the future of America’s outdoors, our communities’ connection to these places and reconnecting Americans from all walks of life to the outdoors, please join us in GO Week, June 24 – 27, 2013 in Washington DC.
