Power To Be and CAN share insights into outdoor adventures at MEC Outdoor Nation
When you explore your local park, venture down a hiking trail or paddle along a shoreline, have you ever asked yourself “who is missing from the outdoor spaces we love the most?”
That is the question we recently explored at 2018 MEC Outdoor Nation. In partnership with Canucks Autism Network (CAN), Power To Be co-facilitated a workshop exploring how we can provide support and opportunities for individuals to access the outdoors regardless of barrier or disability.
We’re excited to share the concept of universal design in the context of outdoor recreation – how outdoor facilitators or enthusiasts can set up activities and environments in a way that allowed everyone to participate. Check out four simple but powerful tips to making nature more inclusive.
