Health and Well-being Outdoors Glow Meet 4.15 pm – 5 pm Wednesday 18th January 2012

Young People Managing and Assessing Risk through the Outdoors – Physical Wellbeing HWB 3-16a – 4-16a

We are delighted to be able to host this Glow meet live from the Edinburgh International Climbing Arena, Ratho, where we will be climbing with teacher Nick Tait and his group from Grangemouth High School. Also joining us will be Martin Davidson, Director of the Outward Bound Trust, who will tell us more about the OBT’s adventure challenge approach to learning and the way this helps to build resilience in young people.

During this Glow meet we will look at practical examples for how we can use challenge activities in the outdoors as a rich resource for developing young people’s skills in risk awareness, assessment and management. We will also look at learning strategies that can be used to build skills and understanding in the area of personal safety, for example travelling safely, keeping others safe, managing situations and responses in emergencies. Please come prepared to join in the online discussion and to share your own examples with others.
