Our world has changed. The tragedy that filled our news feeds, our skies and in the most devastating cases our homes over Christmas and the new year was unprecedented in scale, intensity and duration. It is ongoing.
Like many organisations, Outward Bound Australia continues to assist people and communities in need now. While brainstorming how best to serve our country in the coming months and years, we agreed it’s to collaborate with more schools and community organisations building capacity in young Australians to be courageous, resilient and creative change-makers.
Adapting to current and future challenges, including climate change, is more crucial now than ever before. The scale of change during my lifetime (OK Boomer!) has brought science fiction to everyday reality, some of which accelerates this environmental crisis. Today’s younger generation will witness progress not yet imagined with the added responsibility of learning from and repairing damage from earlier ages.
Your students, or people in the community you work, with will be emotionally, physically and mentally challenged by Outward Bound’s model of authentic adventure learning. Carefully crafted and skillfully facilitated initiatives enable them to:
They are encouraged to think critically and creatively, communicate and collaborate in unfamiliar places through challenging situations. Curiosity, compassion and courage are celebrated. Human connectivity and empathy are honoured.
These attributes underpin the complex and innovative thinking required to shape our future.

Outward Bound Australia respect and admire the courage and proficiency of the predominantly volunteer firefighters who continue to battle fires across our country. Our thoughts are with the communities and wildlife impacted and we will continue to assist with emergency accommodation, food and on the ground assistance.
