AECO-SGLM Associațion for Education and Outdoor Culture
The Association for Education and Outdoor Culture (AECO Romania) aims to promote the educational values of outdoor activities and the nature movement, generically called "outdoor" ("beyond the door" in English).
Among these are: walking (summer) and snowshoe walking (winter), cycling (mountain and road), rock climbing, mountaineering, speoturism, rafting, canyoning or skiing).
For us walking in nature and the mountain mean respect and education.
