Transforming Outdoor Learning in Schools: Lessons from the Natural Connections Project
Champions the value and impact of well-planned, regular outdoor learning based on work with 125 schools
The Natural Connections project in England provides a compelling case for school-based outdoor learning, including proven strategies for schools to overcome challenges and embed into policy and practice. Working with 125 primary, secondary, and specialty schools, following more than 40,000 students, 2,500 teachers and 2,500 teaching assistants over four years, the project’s scale significantly bolsters the evidence of positive outcomes of outdoor learning for students, teachers and schools. Findings from the project’s extensive evaluation are summarized to best support schools’ awareness and advocacy of outdoor learning benefits.
