Professional conferences can inspire, educate and refresh as well as being great places to renew aquaintances and meet fellow professionals in the fields of outdoor learning. I enjoy attending and participating but always prefer to contribute in some way if I can.
I am always happy to devise new workshops on themes associated with outdoor learning, forest education including practical skills, Forest School, experiential learning, creativity, learner autonomy, values/ attitudes/ politics and sustainability. Feedback from participants has included comments such as:
“really helped me think about how to facilitate creativity”
“inspired me to keep on exploring woodlands at a physical, mental and emotional level”
Please get in touch if you would like to discuss an original and innovative workshop for your event.
