The first Wild and Away conference was held in July 2004 to fulfil the dissemination role of the Wild About Play project. Subsequently the conference was run for a second time in 2006 and plans are underway for a third conference in the summer of 2008. The conference is co-ordinated by a small development group from Playwork Partnerships and local partners (previously Herefordshire Nature Trust and SkillsActive). As the Wild About Play project had developed an ethos of environmental sensitivity through the sourcing of recycled materials and certified paper for printed materials, it was a natural progression to identify ways of delivering a national conference with minimal environmental impact.
