SPDN event at Camphill School Aberdeen and Robert Gordon University – summary

With its warm community spirit, peaceful environment and holistic approach to living together, the Camphill School Aberdeen is easily one of the most inspiring social pedagogical settings to visit. Participants at the 14th SPDN were able to feel this with every fibre as the Community hosted our summer event of the Social Pedagogy Development Network together with the Robert Gordon University. Over 24 hours, we explored social pedagogy across the lifespan, with keynote presentations by Kate Skinner, Janine Bolger and Patrick Walker, Fiona Feilberg, and Claire Cameron, as well as lots of interactive parts that made this a very memorable event: experiential workshops in Camphill settings, group activities including a performance by the newly initiated SPDN band, time for open space conversations, networking, and thematic workshops. A more detailed summary of the event, including presentations and photographs, is available here. And if you’re not already signed up to our SPDN emailing list, please feel free to register for future updates here. We’ll soon announce details of the next SPDN event in winter and look forward to seeing many of you there!
