When: Thursday, 28th – Friday, 29th May, 2020
Where: Box Hill Institute, Lilydale Lakeside Campus
The Education Outdoors Conference is a major annual event that provides professional learning for teachers, educators and students within the Outdoor Education sector and connects with community groups, government and related businesses.
Advocating for Nature
It can be overwhelming to know how best to act amidst so many world-wide reports on the effects of climate change, mass extinction, loss of biodiversity…and the list goes on.
There are plenty of positive stories emerging, however, pointing to the importance of rebuilding human relationships with nature, and outdoor leaders are in a unique position to do just that.
By helping create positive experiences in, and with nature, we can be a part of the leading movement for change.
OV has a team of passionate people building a different type of conference experience for 2020. Whilst there will still be plenty of individual breakout sessions to choose from, the focus will be on working and exploring ideas collaboratively. Attendees can expect to be facilitated through a journey of connecting, exploring and acting for Nature.
Within the overarching theme of nature we’ll be exploring topics such as:
- our relationship to nature, as individuals, and as educators in the outdoor space.
- how to advocate for positive environmental practices.
- how to confidently address questions about the state of nature today.
- how to deepen our society’s relationship with nature.
