NORTH EAST MOUNTAIN TRUST
A Quality Future for Mountaineers and Hill-Walkers
From 1 January 2021, the EU's world-renowned environmental protections will no longer apply to Scotland. We have until 31 December to make Scotland's new nature laws as strong as possible. Sign the @scotlink petition: fightforscotlandsnature.scot/petition #FightForScotlandsNature
Mountaineering and Hill-walking are amongst Scotland's most popular pastimes. In the North East, we are privileged to have access to some of Scotland's finest mountains, with outdoor options ranging from short strolls to as much adventure as any of us could ever wish for.
With the advent of the Scottish Parliament, legislation is appearing that significantly affects our mountains. Major decisions are being made by politicians and civil servants in Brussels, Edinburgh and our Local Councils.
Modern legislation is leading to a lot more consultation. There are more opportunities for all of us to get involved. There is more information to be read and digested. There are more documents to be commented on. You can do these things by yourself but, for many of us, the best way is as part of a like-minded team.
NEMT was set up in 1980 to ensure that we can influence how our mountains are managed and used. It acts as an umbrella group, representing groups of clubs making a co-operative team effort.
If we are to continue to enjoy our favourite pastime, it is imperative we are fully aware of developments and do not put our heads in the sand. NEMT provides a vehicle for involvement in the debates that are shaping the future of our heritage.
Remember ... "You don't know what you've got till it's gone."
