Training has suffered a bit in our current distressed times so when there is a chance to do something exciting, we can only hope that people will dive into the opportunity.
Why not seize the moment and find new inspiration, activities to use and renewed delight in the work we share.
‘From Apathy to Empathy – Reconnecting People and Place’
featuring leading international and national experts in place-based education
22nd-24th August 2012, The Burren, Ireland
This unique event will bring together leading local, national and international thinkers and practitioners who specialise in the theme of place-based learning (jncluding your very own Creeping Toad). Place-based learning encourages the use of the local environment as a learning resource. It immerses individuals in local heritage, culture and landscape, encouraging them to become more aware of and engaged with their place.
