Well-being in the outdoors 

In 2007 I was appointed within the School of Early Childhood where I have been able to link my interest in sustainability and wellbeing with young children’s experiences of Education for Sustainable Development and Global Citizenship (ESDGC) in Wales. I have a level 3 Forest School Leader qualification which supports my work with children and adults in the outdoors.
