We’ve given a bunch of leaders in various areas of the outdoor learning space a couple of important tasks for the 2019 conference:

1. Sourcing presenters with the relevant understanding and skills in at least one of the fields of ’Diversity Inclusion & Care’ in the broader community.
2. Offering support and guiding principals to ensure the relevance of presentations to our audience: the students and people working in the Outdoor Learning space from pre­school to the tertiary level.
