Nature Play Conference 2019

Conference / AGM Canterbury

Posted: 20 October 2018
Notice reference #: 1H9mgp

A 1 day Nature Play Conference with an optional 1/2 day workshop the following day in Christchurch.

As the nature play movement grows in New Zealand, we want to provide you a way to connect with like minded people while gaining knowledge and confidence to use nature as the teacher.

Come and join us for a day of inspiration with some amazing New Zealand speakers, who will be exploring our children’s connection to their local environment through conversation and interaction.

  • Understanding how social, emotional and behavioural development is impacted by learning in nature
  • Understanding ways to incorporate and develop manawhenua in nature play
  • With more confidence in their own ability using nature as a teacher
  • Inspired by new ideas through practical workshops

  • Armed with knowledge to support them in getting children outdoors and into their local environment
  • Having connected and networked with like-minded people
