Environment and Outdoor Education

Outdoor Education (OE) is the use of outdoor journeys for life-long play, enjoyment, adventure, health & well-being, fitness and socialisation. Outdoor education skills are a tool to facilitate exploration of natural environments. From exploratory walks in the early years to the investigation of the environment in which a journey is conducted from a scientific, indigenous, sociological, cultural, economic and personal perspective for senior years, OE aims to develop decision making, relationship building, grit, critical thinking and problem solving skills.
