beyond the uk

Cambium is building links to Forest School and Outdoor Learning outside the UK. Anney Thornton Wood, the founder of Cambium has spent time in China and in Finland, and Sam returned in September 2018 from his third period of training and conferences in China, visiting regions as far apart as Inner Mongolia, Zhejiang and Guangdong.


We are now working on linking up with national and local organisations in several other countries, helping to provide training materials and qualification frameworks. Please contact us for more information.
