BACKGROUND

 

The places where we live are full of stories, hidden nooks and crannies, interesting people and rich relationships between the human and more than human worlds.  Here, where we are now, can teach us so much, engaging not just our brains but also our bodies and hearts.  All we need to do is step off our usual paths…

 

Open Ground specializes in outdoor learning, delivering projects in schools, teacher training, research and consultancy.  Based near Inverness, in Northern Scotland, we bring a long experience of making the local area accessible and full of opportunities for learning and wonder.  Open Ground helps teachers develop skills to make films, maps, stories, surveys, place-names and more in the landscapes around the school.

 

Learn

Open Ground runs a variety of exciting projects with schools, going outdoors to do simple and engaging activities while developing more confident and capable teachers.  Open Ground provides training workshops for teachers and educators at a variety of levels, including postgraduate, exploring both the techniques and the ethos of learning in the outdoors.

 

Develop 

Through participative and community based research, Open Ground can help you answer important questions for your community or context.  Open Ground brings experience of extended and in-depth action research, involving organizations in exploring and solving questions which matter.

  

Sustain

Open Ground aims to foster a deeper sense of place and value for our everyday landscapes.
