Learning from Nature Learning from Nature

Join the MOE Foundation’s Catriona Horey and Elizabeth Wainwright for a summer evening of nature exploration and personal and professional development in London’s tranquil Battersea Park.

Thursday 25th August, 5.30pm-7.30pm, Battersea Park, London, SW11.

We’re coaches with a passion for nature, wild spaces and exploration. We’d love you to join us on 25th August and, in a fun and creative way, to discover or enhance your relationship with nature and wilderness. We are aiming to create a space to relax, to enable thinking beyond usual boundaries, and to experiment with new possibilities in coaching (and be experimented on!).

We hope that you will leave our workshop feeling refreshed, inspired, and in tune with what nature has to teach us all. And so we invite you, in a safe and fun environment, to:

  • Take a break from urban surroundings; from computers and commuters!
  • Learn from the wonder of nature, and explore how to use it to unlock potential and help transform your thinking. 
  • Consider new perspectives and be inspired to dream big.
  • Connect with yourself, others and the environment around you.
  • Learn nature coaching tools and techniques, which you can use to help yourself, your clients and others to thrive. These techniques involve the use of natural objects and imagination, as well as doing some exploring within Battersea Park!

Interested? To be one of up to 24 workshop participants, please email us and let us know you’d like to join us (catriona@withcatriona.com and elizabeth@elizabethjaynewainwright.com).

We are delighted to offer complimentary tickets to MOE staff, volunteers, students and alumni; and we are offering a discounted ticket price of £15 to all attendees new to the MOE Foundation.

We will email participants further details in early August, including a meet-up location. We look forward to connecting with you, and with nature!

A bit more about the coaches:

Catriona focused the first ten years of her career on transforming the performance of social enterprises and of leaders in social impact in London, New York, and beyond.  In 2014, building on this experience, she committed to working as a leadership and life coach to help empower others to develop and thrive.

A MOE Certified Coach and Certified Professional Co-Active Coach (CTI), Cat's clients are often leaders in social/environmental innovation; high potential professionals; and women in their 20s and 30s. A firm believer in the MOE Foundation’s work, Cat is a MOE Operating Board member, coach trainer, assessor, and train the trainer. She is also a focused interviewer for The Future Leaders Trust; Teaching Leaders assessor; Lane4 associate and RSA Fellow.

The daughter of conservationists, Cat has worked on social and environmental projects in India, China, Mongolia, Ecuador and the USA. She is excited to be developing an arm of her coaching services which brings in the power and wonder of nature.

Elizabeth has lived and worked around the world, including in Africa, Asia and Central America, and has spent thousands of hours working on, and thinking about, community and individual development. She’s the co-leader of international community development charity CHGN, as well as a writer and a personal coach for 'Changemakers', creatives and thinkers. She travels quite a bit and loves the wilderness.

Elizabeth has an MSc in International Development, an NCTJ Photojournalism accreditation, and is a MOE-certified coach. She believes in the mission of the MOE Foundation, and is on the MOE Operating Board. She is a Fellow of the Royal Society of Arts (FRSA).

Elizabeth was the Deputy Editor of the UK’s longest-running Environmental Magazine (Resurgence & The Ecologist). She takes any opportunity she can to play / hike / explore in nature; this has seen her on wilderness safaris in Africa, and hiking alone through the snow-covered mountains of Japan’s north island, Hokkaido. She has seen and felt how learning from nature can positively impact our communities and ourselves. Elizabeth is working towards a Community Coaching certification and is excited to explore the fusion of wilderness and nature with individual and community transformation.
