ENVIRONMENTAL LEARNING AT OUTWARD BOUND

We facilitate young people’s personal development through enabling them to experience adventures that involve being immersed in the natural environment.

OUR APPROACH TO LEARNING ABOUT THE ENVIRONMENT

Learning about the environment is a key element of all Outward Bound courses. In the context of our courses, the term ‘environmental learning’ refers to inspiring concern for and raising awareness of the natural environment. Through our partnership with our education partners, we are able to add value to our course delivery in this area; increasing the overall impact on the young people with whom we work. Our instructors facilitate young people’s learning in this area by guiding them through a series of steps as shown below.
