As outdoor practitioners we are already experiencing increased risks from volatile and changing weather and environmental conditions. How can we best prepare to successfully and safety adapt? This session will introduce Outward Bounds’ initiative to establish a National Centre for Outdoor Risk and Readiness (NatCORR). It will share industry co-design feedback and insights about pressing challenges and needs, and the planned program of activities across four key workstreams.
