INclusivity in the OUTdoors

A webinar series OPEN TO ALL that provides an opportunity for the Outdoor Sector to explore a range of themes around Equality, Diversity and Inclusion (EDI) in the outdoors.

INclusivity in the OUTdoors


The 2021 Raising Our Game webinar series provided an opportunity for the Outdoor Sector to explore a range of themes around Equality, Diversity and Inclusion (EDI) in the outdoors. Over 10 webinars running between January and September 2021, our vision was to stimulate conversation and collaboration on EDI, inspiring action on broadening participation and strategic leadership, particularly within the Outdoor Learning community.

The free to attend webinar series was a collaboration between IOL, AHOEC, MOSAIC Outdoors, The Outward Bound Trust and the University of Cumbria. The series saw 1348 live attendees across the first 9 events and over 1,200 YouTube views of the recordings (by 22 September 21).
