This part of the INWA Website provides access to three categories:
1. Our INWA Country Members
2. Registered INWA Trainers and Instructors
3. Nordic Walking enthusiasts through the INWA Club
INWA Country Members
An INWA member is an organisation in a country that seeks to promote, develop and teach Nordic Walking in that country in accordance with the global standards established by INWA. It is INWA’s policy to appoint only one member to a country to represent INWA. INWA currently has members in Europe, Asia and Oceania.
INWA members come from a variety of backgrounds. Some of our member organisations have formed with the specific purpose of developing and promoting Nordic Walking while others are existing sports organisations that add Nordic Walking to the range of sports they promote. Others are involved in other forms of sports, health promotion, rehabilitation or leisure activities and see Nordic Walking as complementary to their other activities. The one thing that they all have in common is that they share a passion for Nordic Walking.
Some members take a little while to develop their organisations and processes to enable them to join. INWA is willing to help potential members grow until they can become full members.
