Scotland's National Position Statement on Outdoor Play and Learning

National Position Statement: Outdoor Play and Learning

About the statement

In 2018, we brought together a broad group of academics and organisations from education, childcare, healthcare, environment and government to create Scotland’s Outdoor Play and Learning Coalition.

The Coalition created a bold position statement which committed signatories to working together to embed playing and learning outdoors as an everyday activity and a fundamental part of growing up in Scotland.
