NEF Cantabria 2021

FOLM - From Outdoors to the Labour Market - the project we have been working on since 2017, is slowly coming to an end. What are the lessons we have learned? What perspectives has Outdoor Learning opened up in Cantabria? What effects has it had on our young people? What do our participants think? These and other questions will be answered by representatives of the Center for Innovative Education, the Government of Cantabria and Grupo Femxa, as well as our special guests Venture Trust and the University of Edinburgh.
