Having developed over the years, our vision, mission and values now play a key role in the work that we undertake across the world.

Our Vision

Our vision is a society where the benefits of regular time outdoors are valued and appreciated, and outdoor learning, play and connection with nature are recognised as fundamental parts of education, at every stage, for every child and young person.

Our Mission

We inspire and enable positive outdoor experiences through cultural change, and the transformation of school grounds and outdoor community spaces. In so doing, we encourage greater appreciation of the environment and access to nature. As advocates of experiential learning we are committed to promoting the benefits it brings to health, wellbeing and whole person development. We achieve our mission by training, education and advocacy, and a professional approach to our charitable operations.
