One of the goals of the IRF is to promote free flowing rivers in the world. We need to keep these rivers clean, accessible and ensure that the rafting industry looks to its future sustainability. We are working with Various Organizations:
- EARTH University – The first project is planting of trees at the WRC2011 locations. View the post about the first trees planted.
- NPO Global Sports Alliance was started in 1999 by sport enthusiasts that wanted to be able to enjoy sport in a healthy environment, and to secure a healthy ecosystem for our future generations. They created the Ecoflag Movement–a global drive that works throughout sport to increase environmental awareness and action.
