Where can you find proven studies on the benefits of outdoor education for students?

It can be hard to find the resources and reading needed to fully understand how outdoor activities and learning sessions help students. Even harder still is uncovering all the different ways this method of learning can impact the development and character growth of the next generations.

We’ve spent some time scouring academic studies and projects to bring you an easy-to-consume infographic with some of the amazing information we have found. Some of these incredible facts about student impact really made us feel inspired and excited about what we, as an outdoor education advocate, enable for schools.

You can print this out and have it on your desk at work, as a talking point in teaching staff meetings or to work from for your own professional development.
