The holistic, action-oriented training comprises 29 course days and offers individual design options.

As early as 1993, the first experiential education training (ZAB) on the German-speaking market, made by OUTWARD BOUND Germany, was very well received. Today, the many years of experience are combined with new impulses, a dedicated teaching team and high safety standards. This hands-on training emphasizes climate-conscious, sustainable programming. As participants, you will learn about the possible applications of experiential education in a professional context, gain a lot of experience with a wide variety of experiential education media, and gain practical experience in guiding a wide variety of activities in nature and reflection.

Experiential education is a well-established and constantly growing and developing professional field. There is a wide spectrum for the use of experiential education methods – travel projects in youth welfare, class trips, vocational integration measures or the promotion of trainees and young executives are just a few examples. Many companies are convinced of the effect and integrate experiential education modules into their vocational training or use outdoor training for team and personnel development.
