Event Case Study
European Outdoor Educators Conference
The EOE conference is the annual event of the European Institute for Outdoor Adventure Education and Experiential Learning. This was the first occasion that the event was held in Ireland and it was hosted by Munster Technological University (MTU) on its Tralee campus. MTU holds the UNESCO Chair in Inclusive PE, Sport, Recreation and Fitness.
The EOE Network is a vibrant association of outdoor education practitioners and academics from around Europe, with other delegates attending from across the globe. The three-day conference reflected that mix with practitioner case studies, practical workshops and academic presentations.
