What are the best ways to engage, inspire and provoke feelings of wonder, curiosity and care for nature in children and young people? What is the role of Creativity in Learning for Sustainability? What happens when we put the Arts at the core of outdoor and environmental education? These are some of the questions that Glasgow-based theatre company Eco Drama have been exploring since 2015 through the delivery of their award-winning creative outdoor learning project Out to Play, which this webinar is based around.
This interactive webinar will:
Share evidence from the Out to Play project, demonstrating the impact and benefits of using the arts in Learning for Sustainability and outdoor learning/environmental education for 3-11 year old’s, specifically exploring the role of outdoor storytelling and drama.
Share practical, creative approaches from the Out to Play project.
Provide opportunities for participation, discussion and reflection on your current practice, planting the seed of curiosity on how to use drama and environmental storytelling in your setting.
The webinar is aimed at teachers, NGOs and others who are interested to explore, promote and develop the role of Creativity in Learning for Sustainability, either within their organisations or individual practice.
