The planning for ER 16 started in February 2012 when the ERA presidium decided the event theme “Energy” and a programme split in 2 parts – European Walks and the Final Week.
There was at that time no host for the Final Week – but the preparations for walks started immediately all over Europe.
The host for the Final Week was finally found in September 2013 after a bidding round between Association Carpatino Ardeleana a Turistilor in Romania (Brasov) and Svenska Turistföreningen in Sweden (Skåne).
The main theme is "Energy".
• Promotion of walking as an “ideal” activity
• Learn about different sorts of energy
• Respect for our unspoilt environments and discovering natural energies sources.
The event will be divided into 2 parts: "EURORANDO Walks" and "EURORANDO Sweden".
EURORANDO walk in Santana, Portugal, held the 22 May 2016
