The conference will feature a variety of online sessions, workshops, gatherings and other opportunities for professional learning, collaboration and dialogue. We’re hopeful that some local gatherings and regionally-based field experiences will also be possible.

Feedback from past Conference Participants:

“Great to see student participation and gain inspiration from fellow educators on how to connect students to the real world outside the classroom, and to make curriculum connections in the process!”

 “I loved the welcome and the plenary and really enjoyed the deep and authentic connection between outdoor learning and First Peoples Principles of Learning.  I valued the presence of so many strong indigenous voices in the mix.”

 “Wonderful to hear the stories about how people are incorporating place-based and land-based practices into their classrooms through integrated experiences. Very inspiring!”

 “I really liked the passion and enthusiasm of the presenters and the attendees.  The range of topics was amazing – from activity-centered workshops to developing environmental awareness and literacy.”
