The It’s Great Out There Coalition has confirmed the appointment of its first policy officer. Margo de Lange will join in September and will lead the day to day management of the coalition.
For the last five years, she has been working at the European Network of Academic Sports Services (ENAS) and she brings extensive knowledge and experience in European public affairs to her new role.
Margo de Lange comments: “At various moments during my time at ENAS, we have shared the stage with the European Outdoor Group and the It’s Great Out There Coalition, to motivate, activate and advocate for physical activity together. I have come to know how this ambitious coalition has a clear mission to mobilise the masses by connecting them to the pleasures and benefits of being outdoors. Now, bringing together my passion for the outdoors, experience in the field of sport and building on my connections, I am ready to take on the challenge to lead the It’s Great Out There Coalition to new frontiers.”
Its Great Out There Coalition Secretary General Andrew Denton adds: “We are absolutely delighted to welcome Margo de Lange to the it’s Great Out There Coalition. Margo’s track record is excellent and when we met, she demonstrated real passion and vision for what we are aiming to achieve with #itsgreatoutthere. She has a deep understanding of the challenges we face, and, crucially, an appreciation of how to meet those, particularly through working closely with public and private stakeholders. I’m very much looking forward to supporting Margo as she leads the It’s Great Out There Coalition into a new and exciting phase.”
