Outdoor Pedagogy 

We are dedicated to research, development, and education looking at children’s outdoor activities. 

How we work

We work with outdoor schools, nature kindergartens, and daycare institutions to develop knowledge about children and young people and their activities outdoors. We cooperate with municipalities, national authorities, and international research colleagues, to lead and participate in development and research projects.

Research areas

Our research areas include:

  • The use of nature among 0-6-year-old children, e.g. in Kindergartens
  • Teaching and learning outside the classroom during the school day (udeskole)
  • Sustainability perspectives in outdoor activities.
