Victoria’s outdoor leaders agree on four top priorities

Have your say on regional development

Premier’s Active April around the corner

Nature Play Week 2015

AdventurePro Video Festival

Farewell Shorebirds

Sea Kayaking Educators Symposium

Another world first for Monash University, which is collaborating with the Outward Bound Hong Kong Trust to put on the first-ever International Sea Kayaking Educators Symposium, to be held in Hong Kong on 30 Nov – 4 Dec 2015. Fantastic work by Beau Miles, as convener of the event. If you run into Beau, ask him if he’s going to paddle or fly there.

Mobile Boatshed

Yachting Victoria, the peak body for sailing in our state, is rolling out a nice little bit of innovation called the mobile boatshed. It’s a way to introduce sailing at the primary and secondary school level, with a range of courses that can be delivered to suitable venues across the state. With programs mapped to the Health & PE, Maths, English and Science curricula, this is a fantastic addition to a school’s outdoor ed program. Over to the website for more info, booking details, and some great photos.

Outdoors internship

Outdoors Victoria is open for applications to our internship program. Internships running from 4-12 weeks are available, and can be scheduled flexibly to fit in with study and other commitments. Interns will gain exposure to a broad range of issues and organisations in the outdoor community, and will contribute to OV social media and other communications, policy research and development, and business strategy and systems. Please contact Chuck Berger on 0417 447599 to discuss further.
