It was such a joy to spend time with our friend and author, Claire Warden, at Semann & Slattery’s EXCELLENT Inspire conference in Sydney on 20 to 22 March. The pandemic has taken our opportunities for catch-ups between Australia and Scotland.
Claire and Australia’s Doug Fargher, AKA Bush Kinder Doug, have edited our latest book, BEYOND THE GATE: RESPECTING THE RELATIONSHIP OF CHILDREN, CULTURE AND THE NATURAL WORLD.
Doug Fargher invited readers to:
“Immerse yourself in a world of learning ‘Beyond the Gate’, a space beyond ingrained and outmoded educational practice. Move both physically and symbolically away from the walls and fences of Eurocentric education and past any associated attitudinal barriers that you might hold.
Beyond the Gate is an inspiring, thought-provoking collection of stories from over 30 educators about children learning outdoors. This book provides vivid insights into the richness and diversity of nature-based programs and the values that have shaped those programs.”
