Develop Learning Outdoors through inspiration, information and interaction
Bespoke facilitation, training & consultancy through interconnection with nature and the outdoor world.
Much has been highlighted about the high-tech and sedentary world of many children and adults today and the significant impact this is having on all aspects of their life. At Develop Learning Outdoors we are one of a growing number of advocates set to promote the value of the outdoors for children and adults. We aim to redress the balance through our work which seeks to ensure children’s entitlement to high quality and meaningful experiences when playing, being and learning outdoors.
Gillian Wilson – Founder
We offer bespoke facilitation, training and consultancy to help you develop learning, playing and being outdoors. Bringing practical and theoretical elements together, we provide inspiring, informative and interactive support to all types of schools, families and communities.
We support the development of both social and emotional health, encouraging self-regulating behaviour and creating space for the development of self-esteem and a wide variety of positive relationships.
Above all we develop high quality workshops and courses to offer meaningful understanding of exciting and creative learning through nature and the outdoors.
