    Programme Description

    This programme will clarify how outdoor environmental education and outdoor life can contribute to sustainable development, environmental health and citizenship.

    The programme focuses on experiential learning based on nature, culture and society. Teaching includes outdoor field-related experiences and learning in and via natural and cultural landscapes. Students must be prepared to pay for the trips, food and lodging that are included in the programme.

    Students will:

    • further their understanding and knowledge of how outdoor environmental education and outdoor life can contribute to environmental understanding, cyclic thinking and increased responsibility for health, citizenship and sustainability.
    • develop a thematic perspective on how the urban and rural landscape can be used as a resource for learning.
    • increase their knowledge of children and young people´s understanding and learning processes in the extended classroom.
    • develop their skills in describing, interpreting and explaining cultural and environmental experiences through field work in real environments.

    This is a one year course but further studies are possible, resulting in a two-year master´s degree.
