Walkshop: Workshopping Barriers while Walking LIMITED
Feedback form is now closed.
Limited Capacity seats available

 In this walking walkshop, we work in pairs and small groups, discussing the barriers your communities may face in connecting to nature. While many of the barriers will be obvious to us, our biases may hide some barriers from us. We'll brainstorm and discuss those hidden, or not-so-obvious barriers, along with many promising solutions. There will be a focus on those solutions that empower and build community capacity to connect young people to nature in culturally relevant ways.

Max Capacity: 40
