    2020年世界营地教育大会落户北京

    “1带4”模式或将实现万人参会

            第十二届世界营地教育大会将于2020年10月14日到18日在中国北京国际会议中心举行,大会报名即日全面启动。值此之际,2020世界营地教育大会组委会主席聂爱军就世界营地教育大会相关事宜接受了媒体采访。


    请聂主席简单介绍一下世界营地教育大会,以及中国取得其主办权的经过。

            世界营地教育大会是由国际营地协会联合主办国或地区的相应机构共同主办的国际会议,是营地教育领域最高级别的国际会议,被誉为全球营地教育届的“奥林匹克运动盛会”。自1987年起,大会每三年在不同的国家或地区举办一次。

            2017年10月,第十一届世界营地教育大会在俄罗斯索契举办,当时中国营地教育业者有百余人前往索契参与了大会。在10月12日闭幕仪式上,国际营地协会主席John Jorgenson先生正式向全世界同行宣布,此前,国际营地协会全球理事会已通过决议,中国获得第十二届世界营地教育大会的主办权。

           由培德书院、营天下、欧森营地教育、蓝象资本、DE未来训练营组成的临时筹备小组从国际营地协会主席John Jorgenson先生手上接过象征第十二届世界营地教育大会主办权的“ICF小蝴蝶”。

            这一重大利好消息来之不易,是筹备小组以及更多的幕后英雄大半年精心准备申办文件的结果,更是中国营地教育界全体同行过去几年共同努力的结果。

            中国获得第十二届营地教育大会举办权后,开始向全球招募2020世界营地教育大会组委会成员及志愿者。截至目前,2020世界营地教育大会组委会成员已超过40家机构。大会定于2020年10月14日到18日在中国北京国际会议中心举行。我们期待着有更多组委会成员以及志愿者加入,更期待这次全球营地教育界的盛典能够吸引来自全球各大洲、各大洋的行业人士参与,同时期待国内各省市均有营地教育从业人员参与此次大会。


    中国获得世界营地教育大会举办权,这对国内营地教育发展将带来哪些影响?

          这一重大利好消息将极大地推动中国营地教育产业的发展,具有里程碑意义。一来,通过大会前后的媒体传播和大众传播,能够让更多的营地教育业内人士,以及公众、政府、学校等了解营地教育。二来,大会可以为营地教育相关专业人士、青年学生、关心营地教育的各界人士提供面对面交流与合作的平台。

            此外,世界营地教育大会可以让全世界各国各地的朋友,深入了解中国营地教育发展现状;以及通过大会,提供与营地教育发展趋势及专业技能相关的培训课程,帮助业内人士尤其是青年导师更好地立足于营地教育行业。


    筹备世界营地教育大会,组委会将着重从哪些方面发力?

            虽然距离大会正式开幕还有一年多的时间,但是时间也是非常紧张了,整个组委会都在紧锣密鼓、有条不紊地准备着。因为世界营地教育大会是非盈利的公益性大会,需要国际营地协会、组委会成员以及全世界各国朋友的支持。

            现在有很多组委会成员以及志愿者积极参与大会,为大会贡献力量,这充分展现了众人拾柴火焰高,同时这么将多人员组织起来,也需要组委会具有较高的协调能力,统筹安排各项事务。

            筹备此次大会,组委会坚持的两项基本基本原则。一项基本原则是注重中国营地教育概念的广泛性,多角度、多领域延展此次大会的分享内容。国内的营地教育不仅包含夏校、户外教育、森林教育、自然教育等方面,还包含研学旅行、户外拓展等领域。

            因此,我们此次大会将会邀请多个领域的专家进行分享,除主会场外还开设了数十个分会场,以确保大会内容涵盖理论基础、实操经验、跨学科知识等。此次大会演讲嘉宾将超500位,与会者可以根据需求选择营地实操、营地规划、营地运营、政策解读、商业模式等内容。

            另一项基本原则是注重惠及更多青年营地导师,设计受青年营地导师欢迎,能够实实在在帮助青年营地导师成长的大会。此次大会为了吸引更多青年参与,在环节设置上更注重互动性,同时为有经验、有想法的青年营地导师准备了“闪电式发言”,给予更多青年营地导师分享、交流的机会。

            大会组委会设有议程委员会、专家委员会等,我们也会邀请大家踊跃投稿讲出自己对行业的理解与看法,同时也会收集每位分享嘉宾的分享文本制作成大会文集,让大家能够将经验“带回家”。

          为了惠及更多青年营地导师,大会在门票售卖做了非常有意思的设计,即采用“1带4”模式,每位营地主任购买1张主票,可以免费绑定4张副票。也就是说每位公司拥有者在购票时,需要同时为公司中的四位青年一线导师报名。

            通常一些国际的营地大会每张门票售价700美金,而此次大会早鸟价门票2000元人民币可以实现“1位营地主任+4位青年导师”同时参会。此外我们还针对大学生开办了学生特惠通道,以此来吸引更多的青年参与大会。大会报名即日全面启动,预计参与总人数将超万人,我们相信这些青年与会者将为中国营地教育带来新拐点。


    请您详细谈谈青年与会者将为中国营地教育带来新拐点。

          想要踏足营地教育行业,最好的切入口是从青年营地导师做起。青年营地导师可以涉及课程设计、活动领队、后勤管理等内容,同时青年营地导师也最能深入了解孩子活动体验。具有基层经验的青年营地导师,将在日后大有可为。

            在国内适合开展营地活动的场地超过10万家,适龄参与营地活动的青少年近2亿,而营地教育作为家庭教育和学校教育的有益补充,备受政策加持和大众认可,因此未来发展前景广阔。我曾参前往香港考察营地教育,香港大概有700多万人口,其中40%到50%的人每年至少会参与一次营地活动。这种境况将来在大陆也可能实现。

            而行业的发展离不开优秀人才,离不开优质导师。世界营地教育大会惠及越多青年营地导师,就会有越多青年对营地教育了解得更透彻。青年营地导师通过听会学习、彼此交流等,不仅会提升其对行业的认知水平,更会激发起投身行业的持续热情,这将为国内营地教育行业发展奠定有利基础,甚至促进未来营地教育十年的发展,助力营地教育行业实现2030年的规划目标。



    Beijing Will Host the 2020 International Camping Congress

    “One PLUS Four” Policy Will Bring Over 10,000 Attendees

     

    The 12th International Camping Congress(hereafter ICC)will be held in Beijing International Convention Center, Beijing, China on 14th-18th October 2020. The Congress enrollment starts now.

    And the President of the ICC2020 Organizing Committee Aijun Nie has been interviewed to talk about related issues of the ICC.

     

    President Nie briefing introduced ICC and how China obtained the host right.


    ICC is the highest-level international camp education conference held by International Camping Fellowship (hereafter ICF) and corresponding institutions in the host country/district. ICC has been referred to as the “Olympic Festival” of the international camp education. Ever since 1983, ICC has been held in different countries/districts every three years.

     

    In October 2017, over 100 Chinese camp practitioners attended the 11th ICC held in Sochi Russia. And in the closing ceremony, the President of the ICF John Jorgenson officially announced that the ICF Global Directorate had passed the resolution that China obtained the right to host the 12th ICC.


    A temporary preparing team consisting of Peide Academy, Campedia, Camp Awesome, BE Capital and DE took over the “ICF Butterfly” symbolizing the host right of the 12th ICC from John.


    This great news has been hard earned, a result of over half a year's preparation of the preparing team and other members who have been devoted to this. Even more, it’s also a result of the past few years’ hard work of all China Camp Education Personnel.

     

    Ever since China got the host right, we have started to recruit the 2020 ICC Organizing Committee members and volunteers from around the globe. And until now, there has been over 40 institutions in the committee. The 12th ICC will take place in Beijing International Convention Center, Beijing, China on 14th-18th October, 2020. We expect more committee members and volunteers, and even more, we hope this international camp education festival will attract personnel from all over the globe and China.

     

    What influence will China's obtaining the ICC host right bring to the development of domestic camp education?

     

    ICC2020 will be a milestone in pushing forward the development of China Camp Education to a large extent. Firstly, with the publicity campaign through media and public before and after, this Congress will allow more and more camp personnel, the public, the government and schools to get a better understanding of camp education. And secondly it's also determined to provide a face-to-face communication and cooperation platform for camp personnel, young students, and all others caring about camp education.

     

    What's more, ICC2020 will also allow people from around the world to see the status quo of China camp education. And also through providing training courses on camp education developing trends and professional skills, this Congress will assist camp personnel and young counselors to better keep their foot in this field.

     

    To prepare for the ICC, what will the Organizing Committee focus on?

     

    Though still a year away from the official opening ceremony of the Congress, we are on a quite tight schedule. The preparatory work has been under intense and orderly process with the Committee. And since the ICC is an non-profit conference, we need support from ICF, committee member and friends from all over the world.

     

    \Currently, many committee members and volunteers are actively participating in and contributing to the congress, which exactly proves the saying that “united, we can achieve more”. Also, to organize such many personnel, the committee also needs to have a high capability in coordination.

     

    There are 2 basic principles the committee holds to while preparing for the Congress. First, the contents should focus on the breadth, multi-angle and multi-domain of the definition of China Camp Education. Domestic Camp Education refers to not only summer schools, outdoor education, forest and nature education, etc., but also study tours and outward bound.

     

    Therefore, this Congress will invite experts from different fields and besides the main conference hall, it will also host dozens of parallel sessions covering theoretical basis, management experience and interdisciplinary knowledge. There will be over 500 guest speakers and attendees can choose from topics on camp running, design, management, policy analysis, business model etc.

     

    The other principle is to better serve young counselors by making the congress more to these young counselors'taste and by helping them develop in good stead. This Congress will emphasize more interaction with young counselors to attract more of them. Also those with experience and ideas will be able to give “Flash Speeches”, so they have more chances to share and communicate.

     

    The Committee also has Agenda Committee, Expert Committee, etc. Also we encourage everyone to submit articles about their understanding and insights into the field.

    Besides, we will transfer all speakers’ speeches into texts, and make a collection so it's quite convenient for you to bring all this experience home.

     

    To benefit more young counselors, the Congress has designed a very interesting ticket policy, namely, “One PLUS Four”. when one camp director gets one Premium Ticket, he/she also gets four affiliated tickets for free, namely, when you get one Premium Ticket, you also get tickets for 4 young counselors in your company.

     

    Normally, the price for previous ICC was normally 700 dollars (about 4900 RMB). Yet, the early-bird price for ICC2020 is 2000 RMB for “one camp director and four young counselors together”. Moreover, Congress has also opened a special favorable access for college students to attract more youngsters.

    The number of all attendees is projected to be over 10,000 and we believe these young participants will bring a new turning point to China Camp Education.

     

    Can you talk more about the belief that these young participants will bring a new turning point to China Camp Education?

     

    Young counselors are a perfect starting point if you consider entering camp education. They can be trusted with program design, activity leading, logistic management, etc. and also they are those who can get a deeper understanding of campers’ experience. Those with direct experience in camps normally have a promising and fruitful future in the field.

     

    In mainland China, there are over 100,000 lands suitable for camp activities and around 200 million teenagers of age for camps. And camp education, as a beneficiary supplement to home and school education, has got a bright future with support from government policies and acknowledgement from the public. I used to go visit Hongkong camps. HK has a population of over 7 million, 40-50% of whom go to camps once every year. This is also a foreseeable fact in mainland China.

     

    The development of the field is closely connected with brilliant human resources and counselors. The more young counselors this ICC2020 benefits, the more of them can get a better understanding of camp education. By attending different workshops and talking with camp personnel, they can gain both a better understanding of the field and also an enduring passion into it. This will lay a good basis for the development of the field, even for the next 10 years and help achieve the 2030 goal of China Camp Education.
