Throughout the year OASES work with partner organisations and sponsors to run special events to educate, inspire and engage different audiences with the great outdoors and global sustainability education. Please see listed below the forthcoming events for 2020/21.

Learning for a Healthy Future Conferences

Utilising the Outside to Improve Achievement and Well-Being

The 'Learning for a Healthy Future' conference will be postponed until hopefully summer 2021.  We hope you can join us on this alternative date, for a conference that promises to be both informative and inspirational.

Two major one day conferences to explore the wider benefits, to both pupils and staff, of learning and spending more time outside. 

Day 1:  Date to be Confirmed       £199
Leaders & Facilitators
Day 2: Date to be Confirmed        £199
Classroom Teachers & Practitioners
 Book a place for both days for £349

Venue: Beamish Hall Hotel, Beamish, Stanley, DH9 0YB


The days will incorporate a mixture of keynote speakers, workshops and practical opportunities, all used to explore the latest research and pedagogical approaches. The conference will enable all schools and settings to embed new learning to benefit pupil well-being and achievement.  Confirmed speakers include: Professor Robert Winston (world-renowned expert in fertility and genetics) and Sue Waite (expert in the impact of outdoor learning upon health and well-being).
