The Children & Nature Network is inspiring the global movement to increase equitable access to nature so that children - and natural places - can thrive.

The C&NN International Leadership Summit will engage 400 people in productive working sessions in six action areas: Green Schoolyards, City Government, Next Generation Leadership, Grassroots Leaders, Healthcare Providers, Nature-based Learning Research. Summit participants will work over two days to develop shared goals, action agendas and explore methods for measuring progress in their Action Areas.

Since you are participating in a specific Action Area, your schedule will be completed for you-- this means that you will not need to sign up for any Summit sessions in Sched. By the beginning of May, we will link your Sched profile to your Action Area.

Experiential Educator
Prescott, Arizona
I direct the Pelican Leadership Academy (PLA), a special experiential learning school based upon the lakes and rivers of North America. The PLA provides local and regional youth age 6 to 18, hands on 'Life Skills' training, learning the many components of Communication, Leadership, Management & Accountability. When a strong level of competency is achieved, the PLA student qualifies to join the 'Adaptive Team', assisting myself in operating & managing the PLA 'Adaptive Kayak & Canoe' program. PLA programs focus on Community, Culture, Diversity, Disability, Adaptation & Inclusion. The PLA Graduate students are qualified to serve most all 'Special Need - Disability' individuals. Training continues daily to assure that skills are clearly maintained. PLA focuses on serving Disabled Youth, Native American Youth and Teen-age Mothers.
