ABSTRACT
This presentation argues a case for a broad concept of “education outdoors” as the natural corollary to “education indoors”. It argues that programs should provide independent learning experiences that address the capacities of learners and the value contexts in which they learn; and that taking responsibility for actions should be an important program focus. I’ve experienced the Outdoor Environmental Education Concept during the course “Outdoor Environmental Education. Experiential Approaches to Learning” that has been organized by Kinda Municipality from Sweden, at Blairvadach Outdoor Centre din Helensburgh, Scotland, UK. This course has been financed by the European Commission through the Lifelong Learning Comenius Program.
