Firstly, what do we mean by skillsharing and why call the event a skillshare?
Everyone has skills that others would like to know and the skillshare is a perfect place to share those skills and learn new ones.
We feel that traditional forms of learning are highly limited and exclude a large number of people.
Everyone has a different way of interpreting and processing what they learn, at different speeds and with different applications in mind. Because of these considerations the skillshare aims to provide a flexible and informal framework around which all the participants of the event can both learn new skills in a manner of their choosing and be comfortable sharing the skills they have with others.
The pre-organisers of the event do have lots of collective experience of outdoor life we would like to share but we definitely have lots to learn ourselves. By providing the space for skillsharing we hope to collectively empower ourselves and others to increase our mutual capacity for effective action.
