Educational Renaissance 2.0: Building An Effective Long-Stay Residential Outdoor Program

Room: Stringy Bark 2
As the world rapidly changes, we see the impact of technology on education, which is producing less capable students at a much greater cost and their mental health concerns are through the roof. Long-stay residential programs, therefore, present a unique and important opportunity to build resilience and critical skills for life.This workshop will explore how we can leverage outdoor education on long-stay programs to address some of the most critical educational challenges of our time.
