Emphasis is placed on the transfer of learnings from our learning environment to other life contexts.
Experiences in outdoor environments provide opportunities for learners to question their personal lifestyle choices and their commitment to environmental sustainability.
Self Awareness Activities
Problem based learning fosters opportunities, within a range of novel outdoor learning environments, for learners to critically evaluate how their actions influence themselves, other group members and the environment.
