New Outdoor Learning in Nature Fund

Outdoor Learning in Nature Fund Launch

Scotland’s New Minister for Rural Affairs and the Natural Environment announced more than £600,000 of funding for Outdoor Learning. Mairi Gougeon MSP made the announcement during a visit with school children to Jupiter Artland Foundation - a sculpture park in woodland near Edinburgh.

The aim of the Outdoor Learning in Nature Fund is to support more young people to have regular, frequent, structured and progressive outdoor learning experiences. The projects selected are focused on young people (3-26 years). They involve a diverse range of activities including the regular use of local parks and greenspace for outdoor learning by schools or groups, visits to nearby countryside, forest or coast planned to complement use of the school grounds, parks and local greenspace. They create opportunities to experience some of Scotland’s 'special places' of national and international importance for their nature or landscape. A second round of funding is planned later in the year.
