Outdoor Learning in Wales

 

Cymraeg

Wales is divided into three regions, each of which includes a National Park and one of the three Welsh Outdoor Charter Groups. (These are grass roots movements set up by local practitioners to help them look after their ‘office’ and are open to any practitioner operating within Wales). North Wales (the Heart of Adventure) stretches from northernmost Anglesey to the southern boundary of the rugged Snowdonia National Park; from the wild western coast of the Llyn peninsula to the English border and includes Gwynedd, Anglesey, Conwy, Denbighshire, Flintshire, Wrexham and northern Powys. This area has given rise to the North Wales Environmental Outdoor Charter Group. South-West Wales includes Ceredigion, Carmarthenshire, Swansea, Neath Port Talbot and of course Pembrokeshire with its glorious Coastal National Park (the only one in the UK) which is looked after by the Pembrokeshire Outdoor Charter Group. South-East Wales covers the Vale of Glamorgan, Rhondda Cynon Taff, Merthyr Tydfil, Newport, Blaenau Gwent, Torfaen, Monmouthshire, Bridgend and southern Powys and includes the beautiful silent reaches of the Brecon Beacons National Park. Practitioners here and from further west set up the South Wales Outdoor Activity Providers Group. Wales has a long tradition of providing Outdoor Learning for people of all ages and abilities. Providers here have a strong commitment to sustainability (environmental, economic and cultural) and inclusivity. They also celebrate the opportunities that a vibrant Welsh culture offers to all.
