Global Bushcraft Symposium


Knowledge sharing, skills transference, cultural exchange, best practice, collaboration…

The Global Bushcraft Symposium (GBS) in 2022 took place 27-31 July in the United Kingdom.

The GBS is an international gathering to promote bushcraft, survival, and traditional skills instruction through the open exchange of philosophies, teaching methods and the sharing of best practices.

The Global Bushcraft Symposia are open to anyone with an enthusiasm for bushcraft, survival, and traditional wilderness living skills. As well as being highly beneficial to those with a strong interest in, or enthusiasm for, the subject matter of these areas, attending a GBS should be of particular interest to those who teach, instruct or share knowledge in these areas, both offline and online. We are all students, just at differing levels of knowledge and experience.

More About The GBS

The GBS doesn’t happen every year, and each GBS is held in a different country to the previous. So, being able to attend the GBS in the UK in 2022 was a unique opportunity.

The 2022 GBS was co-chaired by Paul Kirtley and Dr Lisa Fenton, both of whom were keynote speakers at the 2019 GBS. They gathered a broad array of speakers and demonstrators from the UK, and around the world, to share their knowledge and experience with GBS delegates.

The theme of the 2022 Global Bushcraft Symposium was Lifelong Learning.
