Alongside staff from the University of Chichester, the Releasing Potential Forest School team are presenting a unique screening of the film Project Wild Thing. Project Wild Thing is the result of work by specialists in outdoor education, and showcases the benefits of the outdoors in the context of learning and child development, as well as social-emotional well-being for young people. Centred around the concept of “re-wilding” the film explores the challenges faced by young people who lack contact with the outdoors and the movement to “sell” the ultimate free product (ie. nature) to children.
In collaboration with the Adventure Education, Childhood, Social Work and Social Care departments at the University of Chichester, we invite you to join us for this interactive evening. The film will be screened Tuesday 27th March 2018 from 7:15 – 9:15 pm with a short interval. There will be an opportunity to discuss some of the points and questions raised by the film with local experts from both the University of Chichester and Releasing Potential.
Places are limited so free tickets can be purchased directly from the University of Chichester’s online shop
