LEEF says you can join them for a new reading group based on the book Urban Environmental Education Review published earlier this year by Cornell University Press.
The first piece to be explored from the book is Sense of Place, by Jennifer Adams et al. – an essay about place-based education in cities that can be read online here.
There will be a short period for reading at the start of the evening, followed by a facilitated discussion aimed at shaping a shared practitioners’ perspective on the topic. There will also be an introduction to a new SE Outdoor Learning Hub, which seeks to bridge the gaps between research and practice in outdoor education.
It’s taking place on Wednesday 1st November 1800 – 2000 at a Central London venue tbc. Email firstname.lastname@example.org to stay posted.
LEEF also says come along for a day in Greenwich to gain practical ideas and activities for keeping groups and schools engaged over the winter months. It will be testing a mixture of seasonal indoor and outdoor activities with links across the curriculum. A portion of the day will also be spent on winter tree ID and other flora and fauna identification so you can swot up before the new year. The cost is £35 for members / £65 for non-members.
