Room: Wattle

Lori Modde

The world is now changing at an extraordinary rate and we need to move with the change more than ever before…what does this look like for the Outdoors Sector and in this workshop let’s all gather our thoughts and experiences so we can continue to change our thinking, our plans and our operations to adjust.

In this workshop we will look to cover new trends in education, welcoming staff and clients living with a physical disability, climate change tweaks to operations and communication with clients, what is now needed for professional learning for outdoor educators and practitioners, how best to promote careers in the outdoors, and new trends in diversifying your service and product offer.
