With our project “Conserva es Camí”, Camí de Cavalls 360º activity carries out improvements actions on the path. Since 2017, hundreds of participants and the 40 Nord Outdoor company, organizer of Camí de Cavalls 360º, have made contributions for Camí de Cavalls conservation measures and actions.
WHAT IS IT ABOUT?
Camí de Cavalls 360º, including the Epic CdC360º race, is an activity that makes use of a public and fragile resource that the Camí de Cavalls is. Although they represent a tiny part of the real human pressure that is now assuming the Camí de Cavalls and the natural areas through which it passes, we are aware of our responsibility in the correct use and promotion of this public resource. We do not want to be only users, but we want to be an active part of its maintenance and conservation. With this project, the Camí de Cavalls 360º activity is not only respectful with the path, but also represents a direct improvement in the environment where it takes place.
How does it work? Our activities raise funds that go directly to preservation measures and actions for the Camí de Cavalls path.
The proceeds of these funds are made in two ways:
1) The voluntary donations of the Camí de Cavalls 360º and Epic CdC360º participants. These donations can be made through our shop, or when registering to Camí de Cavalls 360º or to the Epic Camí de Cavalls 360º race.
2) The direct contribution of the 40 Nord Outdoor company, organizer of both activities. 40 Nord Outdoor donates the amount of 2 € for each participant to the activities Camí de Cavalls 360º and Epic Camí de Cavalls 360º. In addition, the company also assumes the cost of project management and the management of the actions that are carried out.
HOW ARE THE FUNDS INVESTED?
The maintenance and conservation actions of the Camí de Cavalls are carried out in coordination with the Menorca Island Council, owner of the path. The actions carried out are intended to mitigate or prevent erosive processes, correct the path course or repair specific elements of the path.
The amount raised is entirely allocated to maintenance and conservation actions for the Camí de Cavalls. All management, advertising and management related to the project are the responsibility of the company 40 Nord Outdoor and the 2 € per participant donated by the company is not used for these concepts.
