World Out­doors Sum­mit in Ro­torua

Walking New Zealand - - Walk Talk -

The world’s lead­ing out­door ed­u­ca­tors and academics are gath­er­ing at The World Out­doors Sum­mit (WOS) - a four-day con­fer­ence in Ro­torua, New Zealand, in Novem­ber - to share, teach and in­spire with their projects and re­search. The Sum­mit is a rare op­por­tu­nity for con­nect­ing, learn­ing and en­gag­ing with the in­ter­na­tional out­door ed­u­ca­tion com­mu­nity’s most in­flu­en­tial lead­ers and thinkers. Del­e­gates will come away with ac­cess to fan­tas­tic tools and in­for­ma­tion spe­cific to the out­door ed­u­ca­tion com­mu­nity, gain in­sights into the lat­est re­search and de­vel­op­ments in out­door ed­u­ca­tion. Prom­i­nent out­door ed­u­ca­tor, Liz Theve­nard, will be speak­ing on the value that out­door ed­u­ca­tion brings to so­ci­ety. The in­tent of her pre­sen­ta­tion is to stim­u­late prac­ti­tion­ers to en­gage in re­flec­tive prac­tice and pro­vide ideas to en­rich and im­prove out­door ed­u­ca­tion pro­grammes.
