IOL Cymru Conference 2019
The theme of the conference is ‘Discovery’
It will be held at Atlantic College, St Donat’s Castle, St Donat’s, Llantwit Major, CF61 1WF on November 16th 2019.
The theme of the conference is ‘Discovery’ and we have two speakers booked: Caradog Jones and Rob Penn.
Caradog has a string of first ascents to his name including Hunza Peak in Pakistan, but is probably best known for being the first Welshman to summit Everest.
Rob Penn is an author, journalist, TV presenter and cyclist. You may have read his books – ‘The Man who made Things out of Trees’ and ‘It’s All About the Bike: the Pursuit of Happiness on Two Wheels’ – or seen him on TV cycling part of the Trans-Amazonian Highway with Freddie Flintoff.
In addition, there some interesting peripheral events going on including the BGM (biennial general meeting) of IOL Cymru.
There will be a wide choice of workshops, talks and updates including:
- Building Resilience
- Passing Inspections
- The New Welsh Curriculum
- Bushcraft: Mindful Shelters
- Bushcraft tools: their safety and use
- Diversity in the Outdoors
- Journalling in the outdoors
- A taster for ‘Fostering a Connection’
