Velkommen til Norge!
We are very excited and humbled by the great privilege of welcoming you all to Norway for the 9th International Adventure Therapy Conference (9IATC) in 2021. To top it off the 3rd Gathering Adventure Therapy Europe (3GATE) is embedded in the 9IATC. Two great conferences in one!
Following an absolutely wonderful 8IATC in Australia, we will transition from the southern hemisphere across to the opposite side of the globe. With the support of the Nordic Outdoor Therapy Network (NOTN), we are proud to host the first IATC in this region. And with the return of IATC to Europe, we collaborate with Adventure Therapy Europe (ATE) in order for 9IATC to also incorporate the Gathering for Adventure Therapy in Europe (GATE).
Be sure to pencil in the dates 21st- 26th of June 2021.
The conference will take place in the Agder region in the southernmost part of Norway. Beginning in the coastal city of Kristiansand we will camp together at the beautiful Odderøya island. Then midway through the conference, we will move camp into the Norwegian mountain village of Hovden – symbolizing the conference theme of ”journeying together” – as we travel from the seaside to the mountains.
Pack your tents and outdoor gear (if you got it – if not, no worries – we will sort it out for you or come up with alternative accommodation of your preference).
Bring your friends and family along – we will set up some sweet hang-out areas and outdoor activities for your kids and partners.
Arrive early and stay longer – we will offer pre- and post-conferences, and also suggest places to explore on your own.
Oh and make sure to sign up for the IAT listserve.
Vi sees snart!
