Fatality Prevention in Outdoor Education and Related Contexts with Children and Youth


Join Dr. Andrew Brookes (visiting professor from La Trobe University, Australia) as he leads us through a case based workshop that explores strategies of prevention of fatalities in outdoor programming. Outdoor educators and industry professionals will be collaborating to discover the important reasons why fatalities really occur in outdoor programs as well as gain the tools and knowledge to implement fatality prevention within respective programming. This one day workshop will be held on Friday, March 22nd in the new Cliff Fielding Research, Innovation and Engineering building at Laurentian Campus. Some pre-cursory reading will be required. Lunch will be provided. A great chance to network with industry leaders from across the province.
