WEBINAR: OUTDOOR LEARNING - ENVIRONMENTAL LEADERSHIP DEVELOPMENT PROGRAMME - Series #2
DATE: Wednesday, 21st April 2021   TIME: 7 p.m.   FACILITATOR:  Patrick Kirwan BSc PhD PGCE

PLEASE BOOK ON THIS WEBSITE www.wtc.ie     A Zoom Link will be emailed to you prior to your webinar

Schools play a vital role in the development of a young person’s character, helping to nurture social and academic attributes.  In this webinar we will examine a UK secondary school model for an environmental leadership programme that is based in a school garden.  We will look at how a school garden can be used to develop leadership skills, communication, independence, confidence, and organisation.

This session is for teachers who want to gain some insight on how we can use a school garden as a conduit for fostering wellbeing, confidence, environmental awareness, community and sustainability.  It is for those who want to look at a new way of learning.  For those who have an ambition to weave nature into the fabric of school life embodying values of sustainability and mobilising the school community to take climate action.

Duration: 1hr – 7 pm to 8 pm

 HOST: Patrick Kirwan BSc PhD PGCE

Patrick is passionate about science, tackling inequality and nature.  After a career in science as an epidemiologist, he trained as secondary science teacher with TeachFirst in London, a teacher training provider whose mission is to tackle educational disadvantage.  While working in disadvantaged schools in London Patrick developed a bespoke model for a whole school nature curriculum.  In school and community settings, Patrick uses nature as a conduit to foster wellbeing, leadership skills, confidence, resilience, environmental awareness and climate action.  Having recently moved back to Ireland Patrick is continuing to teach nature and develop new school environmental models.
