In the context of a discussion about who gets to be included and represented in environmental education research, a group of researchers acknowledged how difficult it is to take time to sit or walk quietly, outside. The group decided to take that time in the midst of their conference session. After about 20 minutes of solo time outdoors, they reconvened, and eventually suggested to the larger conference gathering that it might be a good idea to begin a 'slow scholar' movement (9th Invitational Seminar on Research and Development in Environmental and Health Education).
