Improvement of good governance of climbing and mountaineering in Europe

The main objective of EUMA is to set up and implement principles for good governance in hiking, mountaineering and climbing sports on the EU level. This objective will be achieved in particular through the establishment of EUMA as a credible actor providing good governance in hiking, mountaineering and climbing sport activities and their infrastructure. The project will create mechanisms for implementing good governance principles not only within the EUMA itself, but also through the transfer of good governance principles to its members. The project is coordinated by the Czech Mountaineering Federation with the contribution by several leading mountaineering and climbing association from all around Europe.
