Natural Schooling Research Interest Group (RIG)
Being an outdoor learning coordinator / practitioner in a setting can seem a lonely job at times.
Deborah Lambert co-author of Bloomsbury's National Curriculum Outdoors series and chair of the Natural Schooling Research Interest Group has established a practioner network which meets termly, online, to discuss outdoor learning around a theme - currently ‘Addressing eco-anxiety through the S&CC strategy: a message of hope’ - and provides an international networking opportunity.
The aim of the network group is to:
The group provides the opportunity to meet up with like minded people for an hour or so after school. There is no obligation to join in with every meeting.
Additionally, Deborah has set up networking in Cornwall and West Devon, with meetings taking place all over Cornwall; in person where possible or online (as we are so good at that now!).
Every half term a network host school shares their outdoor learning space and practice, followed by a practical session sharing ideas about taking curriculum subjects outdoors with time to network and deepen outdoor learning practice. This is absolutely free!

If you are not in Cornwall but are interested in setting up your own network please do get in touch and we will do what we can to facilitate this.
