The great outdoors debate begins

Our big conversation about the outdoors, and what we can do to help keep it great, officially launched this week with outdoor enthusiasts gathering in Edale in the Peak District on 4 September to share their views.

Walkers, local residents and businesses, countryside campaigners, outdoor industry professionals, journalists and bloggers all joined in to tell us what they love about the outdoors and what they think might affect their enjoyment of it.

Find out what they had to say below and give us your own views by completing our online survey or starting a great outdoors debate of your own.
