The ‘Fostering a Connection’ course was designed by Lun Roberts (ER Outdoors), Jim Langley (Nature's Work) and Joe Roberts (Natural Resources Wales) to meet the needs of outdoor providers wishing to engage their clients with the environment and to foster their connection to it. The full course takes a day, costs £50 (£30 concessions) and includes a manual. This taster is free and gives you an insight into the philosophy behind the course and a chance to try out some of the activities in the manual including quizzes, games, phone app testing, folk tales, bush craft and much more. Connection takes place on many levels (intellectually, practically, emotionally, spiritually, through our senses, through our creativity, etc.) and the activities on offer reflect this diversity. We are not trying to teach field studies or asking people to become walking encyclopaedias of flora and fauna. Instead we offer games and activities which can be fitted seamlessly into existing outdoor courses.
This taster session is free to everyone and not just IOL members but you must book.
