Mutz, Michael; Müller, Johannes; Göring, Arne – Journal of Adventure Education and Outdoor Learning, 2019
Research provided ample evidence that excessive screen time (ST) in adolescence has detrimental effects on psychosocial health. This paper argues that structured outdoor programs can serve as an antidote to negative health impacts of exaggerated ST. For youth with a high level of regular ST, outdoor adventures imply a break with their 'normal'…
