UWC Founder Kurt Hahn believes that everyone is born with an “outlandish thirst for adventure.” Our Outdoor and Ecological Education (OEE) Programme is founded on Hahn’s Outward Bound method of group development through outdoor and wilderness learning expeditions. At MUWCI, students enthusiastically participate in the MUWCI Core - which seeks to provide the knowledge, skills, and attitudes that are key to living with the UWC mission. The OEE is a mini-UWC experience based on the Core curriculum developed at MUWCI, painstakingly over the years.
This programme is for students who seek adventures and wish to venture outside their comfort zone in the outdoors. The thrill of doing something completely new can often reveal hidden abilities and talents, and the OEE Programme is an opportunity to cultivate a number of important life skills.
This is a week-long programme that will be offered at a Beginners and an Advanced level. It will include inputs on wilderness and first aid training, fitness and camping skills. The programme will also give students a basic introduction to current ecological crises and to living sustainably.
