Outdoor and Experiential Education (OEE) is a vital learning methodology for today's children and young people. Its provision of safe, educator-framed and hands-on experiences in outdoor settings provides unique, vital and lasting benefits in terms of education for curriculum and community, education for character, education for wellbeing and education for environment. This document is a compelling synthesis of a wide variety of current outcomes-based research. It offers concrete evidence as to why OEE should become an essential and publicly funded part of education for the future.
