Why:
The Facilitators of Outdoor Learning (FOOL’s) Forum is an opportunity to network while sharing strategies & knowledge relating to facilitating outdoor learning. Whether your teaching focus is outdoor education or recreation, personal development, outdoor pursuits, commercial, tourism or environmental education, the forum sessions will be an opportunity to share, learn and meet new people. Attendees are encouraged to contribute in a somewhat informal manner – bring your experiences, observations and ideas and be ready to share them with others.
