Right Honorable Tony Blair, commenting on the campaign launch as UK Prime Minister: 'Everything we do in our everyday activity, in our work and leisure involves some element of risk. Risk is an inescapable part of our lives. The challenge for all of us, both within and outside Government is to manage risk in a way which gives us the necessary protection we need without constraining what we do beyond a level that is justified. I very much welcome your conference today as a vital contribution to this debate. I hope that you will enjoy what I am sure will be a very stimulating and productive'.

HRH Prince Philip, Duke of Edinburgh, has passed PDF Print E-mail

Our Patron since the commencement of our campaign, HRH Prince Philip, Duke of Edinburgh, has passed.

An adventurer to the end, our patron’s innovative, adventurous, sublime and appropriate ceremony at Windsor Castle - St George's Chapel, provided the subtlely and sensitivity needed by the world in saying its goodbyes to this remarkable statesperson and true Citizen of Our Globe, who was loved by so many.

In 2000, at the RGS in London Prince Philip called for the Campaign for Adventure at the UK Outdoor-Council conference ‘Adventure in Society’. In its 20 years CfA has changed UK laws through an All Party Parliamentary Group ‘ARISc’, held four consultations on adventure at St George’s House, Windsor Castle, and in The Chinese Room, Buckingham Palace, has driven forward the debate on Risk and Enterprise in Society in 12 countries, has identified and celebrated 22 Adventure Champions from diverse UK backgrounds and has challenged the media relentlessly by supporting the  understanding of the need for healthy risk-taking in UK life. CfA now finds itself working harder than ever on society’s risk-supporting agendas including Summer Camps Trust, the Adventure Licensing review, the CBI Education Agendas and challenging the degree of risk being shown by society in its need to drive changes within COVIG19, conservation action and climate change common sense.
