Last week we had a very inspiring day of awareness-raising for would-be John Muir Award trainers. We had a great day and went home enthused to spread the word.  John Muir Trust organised this event with a wee bit of input from me, really in response to the Wilders on Tanera being keen to make the Award available to local schoolchildren.  The Award is focussed on wild places and asks people to Discover, Explore, Conserve and Share a wild place.  It’s flexible and fun and really helps people conect with the environment.  It’s not just for kids – you could try it too!  Maybe as a Family Award? Apparently some organisations are encouraging their staff to do it as CPD and team-building (watch out, CALL partners!). Next summer, Tanera is hosting a group of students from Ullapool High School in four days of activities as they work towards their Discoverer Awards.  Have a look on John Muir Trust website www.jmt.org
