English Outdoor Council (2010): Time for a Change in Outdoor Learning
There is now crystal clear and incontestable evidence in support of learning outside the classroom.
Within the broad sphere of learning outside the classroom, challenging outdoor activities and environmental studies are particularly powerful learning opportunities. They contribute to a range of important societal targets across education, health, anti-social behaviour and community cohesion.
Not all young people benefit from these opportunities.
To redress this unfairness, there should be an entitlement to a progressive range of learning experiences outside the classroom, including at least one residential experience, for all young people.
