About the Sessions

Session 1 with Daniel Burton

In a world where our children are so disconnected from nature, each other, and even themselves, where our classrooms and early learning centres seem plagued with endless focus on behavioural issues and social and emotional concerns, we need to look to the natural environment for support! Nature has an ability to hold us in the most wholesome ways, providing sanctuary, calm, inspiration, and motivation. It is reaching out for us to connect with it in ways we used to thousands of years ago. When we take children outdoors for opportunities to play, explore, and learn, something magical happens!


Richard Louv shares that he hears time and time again, "When I take my students outdoors, the troublemaker in the classroom becomes the leader in nature. Not just better behaved, the leader" and poses the question, "How many leaders are we losing?"


We plan to begin the symposium with an immersive exploration into Nature Pedagogy, Outdoor Learning, and Nature-Based Learning. Daniel Burton, CEO and Co-Founder of Educated by Nature, will delve into current research and share inspiring anecdotal stories that highlight the profound benefits of taking learning outdoors. This session aims to provide inspiration for adults to support them to help children connect more deeply with themselves, their community, and the natural world.


Participants will discover practical strategies for implementing nature pedagogy in educational settings, ensuring a holistic approach to fostering growth and positive behaviour in children. The session will illustrate how the outdoor environment motivates learning through engaging interactions and discoveries with the natural world. By broadening perspectives on the diversity of nature, educators can create enriching experiences that support emotional wellbeing and developmental milestones.


This session aims to equip teachers and early childhood educators with the tools and knowledge to harness the power of nature in their educational practices, promoting a thriving, connected community within the natural world.
