We’ve re-imagined, regenerated an un-used ancient strip of Welsh Woodland, an old concrete patch, into our Outdoor Learning Centre (OLC). Working with students, local children, schools as partners, reconnecting us all to nature, reviving spaces into stimulating arenas for learning / teaching, linking different theories and approaches to practice e.g. Forest School, Earth Education and Nature Pedagogy. Our OLC now comprises a log cabin, log circles, beehives, and gardens.
Working through regenerative and place responsive pedagogy, actively nurturing a sense of ‘communitas’, ‘cynefin’ and care for our environment through civic mission and city-wide campus ethos. The OLC is used for free green workshops focused on greener living, connecting sustainable minded campus to learn together, share sustainable skills, ideas and meet others in the community.
