Women: Nature-Born Leaders. Global University 2019

With partnership by AORE and G Adventures, the AORE and G Adventures Global University is intently aimed at the academic and experiential format of global outdoor learning to foster a community of experts within collegiate outdoor recreation and education. Through working within the outdoor education community, AORE and G Adventures seek to support the appreciation of our natural environment, raise the bar of practice and performance in the global programming development and enhance the profession of outdoor education and recreation through facilitated discussions on best practices, networking with industry leaders and industry experts in order to impart knowledge and inspire others while on a truly unique global adventure.

 

The Association of Outdoor Recreation and Education (AORE) and G Adventures are partnering in 2019 to promote the appreciation of our natural environment and raise the bar of practice and performance in the field of outdoor education and recreation. Thanks to the generous support of G Adventures, this year AORE’s Global University will offer a once-in-a-lifetime learning expedition to Costa Rica that is intentionally designed for women leaders working in outdoor recreation and education.
 
Women are nature-born leaders that bring unique perspectives and skills to the collective work of our field, whether it be in the area of advocacy, the delivery of programs, or the introduction of innovations to shape the future of outdoor recreation and education. Help us demonstrate the powerful impact of nature and health and wellness when it comes to improving educational outcomes and enhancing student experiences overall. JOIN US IN COSTA RICA!

This immersive cultural experience will foster professional development, encourage networking, and develop paths for women to transcend organizations. We will explore the intersection of health and wellness with our profession through a women’s leadership lens---from the analysis of current research and trends to identifying opportunities for collaboration across campuses and articulating the value of experiential learning in the natural world. And together, we will examine best practices and unpack big topics such as the importance of diversity and inclusion, social determinants of health, and the need to build multi-cultural competency. Delivered in a thoughtful, non-judgmental environment, our robust curriculum promises to make for a truly transformative global adventure that is not to be missed!
