Dr Chris Loynes

I am Reader in Outdoor Studies at the University of Cumbria. I also direct Threshold which consults in the UK and internationally for universities, education departments and experiential education organisations.  

Current interests

The application of the outdoors to youth transition;  the wider and more effective use by schools of outdoor and residential experiences; exploring the application of outdoor, experiential approaches to raising issues of  sustainability through non-formal education and adult learning.
