Join POW Mobility Month 2023

The POW Mobility Month 2023 campaign challenges the outdoor community to reduce their travel emissions by choosing more sustainable forms of transportation during the month of March. Whether you are travelling to work, your favourite outdoor location or across international borders, we ask you to join us in the battle against climate change. As a community of millions, we have the power to shift our travel habits and minimise our transport emissions to reduce our impact on the places we love most. We can pave the way for a greener (and snowier) future. Let’s reframe our journeys!

What is a POW chapter?

Across Europe, there are ten countries with a national POW organization. Each of these organizations is called a chapter. The European POW chapters are: POW Sweden, POW Norway, POW Finland, POW Germany, POW Netherlands, POW France, POW UK, POW Switzerland, POW Austria and POW Italy.

Don’t have a POW chapter in your specific country? You are free to join the one you feel the most connected to! Whichever team you choose, this is your chance to make a difference.

If you share your sustainable travel via the Active Giving app on Instagram, you are contributing to a more sustainable future by inspiring others to do the same. What’s even cooler is that you also have the chance to win prizes from our partners. Remember to tag your local POW chapter, @protectourwinterseurope and use #POWMobility.

Don’t miss out on the chance to be part of a movement that is shaping a more sustainable future. Let’s re:frame, re:invent, re:discover, re:imagine, and re:route our journeys together to Protect Our Winters.

What will happen during the month?!
