From the Institute of Earth Education, this is the perfect opportunity to revise and review the practice of leading Earthwalks with some dynamic new activities that focus on our kinship and reverence for the natural world. A course to inspire those new to this method of nature connection, and to reinvigorate and support more experienced educators.

Leading Earthwalks Day - Leadership Workshop

One of the most commonly led vehicles for encouraging people to 'live more harmoniously and joyously with the natural world' is an Earthwalk - a light, refreshing touch of nature that focusses on reawakening individual senses and sharpening perceptions in the natural world. This workshop will help you learn how to lead these walks.
