WHAT IS OUTDOOR CLASSROOM DAY?

Outdoor Classroom Day is a global campaign to celebrate and inspire outdoor learning and play. On the day, thousands of schools around the world take lessons outdoors and prioritise playtime. In 2018, over 3.5 million children in over 100 countries took part. 

Outdoor learning improves children’s healthengages them with learning and leads to a greater connection with nature. Play not only teaches critical life skills such as resilienceteamwork and creativity, but is central to children’s enjoyment of childhood. 

It’s easy to get involved and there is something everyone can do! 

If you’re a teacher and new to outdoor learning, why not use Outdoor Classroom Day to try it out? If you already get outdoors regularly, use the day to celebrate what you’re doing and inspire other teachers around the world to join in. 

If you’re a parent, talk to your child’s school about the importance of outdoor learning and play and encourage them to get involved. Think about how you can spend more time outdoors as a family too and inspire other parents to do the same. 

If you work for an organisation that cares about children, nature, education or the environment, speak to us about how you can get involved. We’re always looking for partners to help spread the message far and wide. 

So that schools can participate on a day that fits with their climate and term times, the global campaign has two dates each year. The next Outdoor Classroom Days are on Thursday 23 May and Thursday 7 November 2019. Sign up below for one or both and help build a movement that gets children outdoors to play and learn every day!
