Richard Irvine

I am an independent outdoor educator and trainer based in south west England. I work with all age groups from pre-school children to adults in woodland environments on long and short term programmes including offering accredited ‘Forest School’ training. My main interest at the moment is in the role of manual craft skills in outdoor experiences. I have been involved with EOE since attending the inspiring 2011 conference in Metsäkartano and have since collaborated with a number of EOE partners on several other events. I am also currently an associate lecturer on the Outdoor Adventure Education Degree course at Plymouth Marjon University. EOE has offered me experiences, conversations and intellectual challenges that have influenced me and developed my outlook and work more than any other professional development I have undertaken. Having gained so much, I would like to put something back into the network and contribute to its future as a member of the board.
