Welcome to Edinburgh OWL Group
The Edinburgh & Lothians Group was formed in 2005. The group was actively involved in supporting Edinburgh’s Forest School pilot project 2006-2008 in partnership with the Forestry Commission Scotland (Scottish Forestry), The City of Edinburgh Council, Scottish Natural Heritage (NatureScot) and Careers Scotland.
EOWL meetings tend to be outside or focus on practical activities that can be undertaken with children, young people and families. Generally the group hold four ideas sharing meetings per year. We are a friendly group and always keen to hear from individuals / organisations whose aims are similar to the OWL constitution. Please get in touch if you want to know more.
Edinburgh OWL Group aims to:
- Find funding to subsidise Forest School Leader Training.
- Run regular ideas sharing workshops for its members.
- Build a pool of educational resources, equipment and tools for member use.
- Provide a network for its members and interested individuals and organisations to benefit from sharing ideas and best practice.
- Maintain links with neighbouring OWL groups, organisations and interested individuals.
