Nothing Ventured… balancing risks and benefits in the outdoors
Aims to encourage readers to take a reasonable and proportionate approach to safety in outdoor and adventurous settings, and to reassure them that managing risks should not be a disincentive to organising activities. It is not a ‘how to guide’. Rather, at a time when many wonder whether society has gone too far in trying to keep children safe from all possible harm, it adds its voice to the call for a more balanced approach: an approach that accepts that a degree of risk – properly managed – is not only inevitable, but positively desirable. English Outdoor Council, c2010.
