Gray, Tonia; Birrell, Carol – Journal of Adventure Education and Outdoor Learning, 2015
With growing disconnection from the natural world, educators who work in the outdoors need to philosophically rethink their "modus operandi". Past efforts by adventure and outdoor educators to promote connection with nature have often centred upon risk-centric approaches incorporating adventure-fuelled and high-adrenalin activities. This…

Fifteen years ago Loynes expressed concern that market-place values were detrimentally impacting on the provision of outdoor education experiences.

Clarke, David A. G.; Mcphie, Jamie – Journal of Adventure Education and Outdoor Learning, 2014
Outdoor environmental education has long postulated a link between experiences outdoors in "natural" environments and environmental concern. This paper suggests a straightforward relationship is problematic due to its implicit assumption of a nature/culture divide. Critical outdoor education has sought to overcome this dualism by…

Autobiographies of prominent environmentalists describe that their early lives have been rich in personal experiences of nature.
