Discover Risk Domains in Outdoor Education Programs


At the main conference, Viristar’s Program Manager, Annie Linhart, will be leading a Risk Domains in Outdoor Education Programs workshop.


In outdoor education programs, managing risk is not just a concern—it's a critical responsibility. This workshop will provide administrators and program leaders with knowledge, tools, and strategies to help identify, assess, and mitigate risks across various domains of outdoor education.


The workshop will be highly interactive, featuring a combination of presentations, case studies, and group discussions. Come prepared to share your experiences and collaborate on real-world scenarios relevant to your program.

Underlying & Direct Risk Domains: the “risk reservoirs” from which come risks that lead to an incident.
