Annual Conference


The OFFSEAS Conference occurred on April 27-28, 2024 at UWC Thailand, with pre-conferences being offered from April 23-26, 2024.


I can not say this enough… OFFSEAS was the best PD and conference I have attended in my 20 years of teaching.

So welcoming to a new person.  Packed with opportunities to share and connect with others in doing the same roles.

Very inspiring weekend and a lot of take aways. This conference is an ideal place for management and leaders to come as they are ultimately the ones who make the school wide decisions for education changes. 

This is a SURE conference to go to meet the great ‘giants’ of outdoor experiential education and place-based learning.
