Abstract

This project examines the lack of diversity in the outdoor industry. It includes statistics that show the demographics that participate in outdoor recreation regularly, as well as reasons that minorities participate less. The project aims to make outdoor recreation more accessible to minorities by providing modular apparel so that people can purchase one garment rather than two or three. Share the Slopes also examines the positive mental and physical effects spending time in nature has, and why it is important for people to get outside.
