This session will use research and examples of practice to inform a discussion of gender differences in children and young people's relationship with outdoor learning.
It will explore the implications of gender differences in participation on the wellbeing and self-efficacy of young people.
In particular it will explore:
- Barriers young people may face in relation to outdoor learning due to their gender.
- Implications for those who may miss out on accessing outdoor learning opportunities.
- How stereotypes may be unwittingly reinforced.
- Practical strategies to help overcome the barriers.
This Session is for all sectors (ELC, primary and secondary) and is relevant for CLD practitioners, particularly youth workers.Book now
