Part Two: Friday [Prerequisite Wednesday workshop]
This workshop is designed as an exploration of the tools and practical resources needed to support children to safely navigating risk in their outdoor play. We will use the ‘Risk Benefit Assessment Framework” being used by Forest School Canada, a program of the Child and Nature Alliance. Practical suggestions and stories will be used to enhance participants understanding of HOW we begin to accept and support risk in children’s play, while still maintaining our ‘duty of care’. This workshop is ideal for nature-based educators, early childhood educators, professionals in the recreation and camping sector, community developers, parents, playworkers and grandparents.
