Founder of Outdoortopia & Global Education Influencer at Education Influence

I believe education is the key to guiding humanity and our planet towards a bright, sustainable future.

I founded Outdoortopia in 2017 as a blog and online community for empowering teachers and other educators to get children outside the classroom, and grow into adaptable, open-minded and environmentally responsible human beings.

"Together we can cultivate the changemakers of the future!"

I have a MSc (by Research) in Science of the Environment and a Post Graduate Certificate in Education (PGCE) from British universities.

For over a decade, I have facilitated outdoor and experiential education programs worldwide for children of diverse ages, abilities, cultural identities, special educational needs and life circumstances in a wide range of environments.

I have developed expertise in the following educational disciplines/areas of competence including:

​​

  •          Youth Leadership & Empowerment

  •          Outdoor Skills & Competencies

  •          Adventure & Expeditionary Learning

  •          Education for Sustainable Development (ESD)

  •          Global Citizenship Education (GCED)

  •          Environmental Field Studies/Citizen Science

  •          Service Learning/Community Engagement

Now it's time to continue to grow, exchange knowledge and ideas, and connect with outdoor and experiential educators worldwide!

Help us boost our reach and impact by joining the conversation and becoming a Community Member or subscribing to the blog.
