Covid-19 Lobbying

Lobbying

 

Residential Outdoor Education has been devastated by the effects of COVID-19 and needs more government support to survive. All IOL members and supporters of outdoor learning can help us make the case - write to your local MP and sign the #saveoutdoored and #SaveYourOutdoorCentres petitions.

UK Outdoors is the sector voice for the Outdoor Learning and the Adventure World. UK Outdoors is lobbying to change the governments Covid 19 guidance which is preventing overnight stays in Outdoor Education Residential Centres. This guidance is preventing formative educational experiences to at least 5 million students across the UK. The sector provides over 15,000 jobs and £700m to the UK economy.

Objective: The Government have committed to review the guidance advising against residential outdoor education in November. Whilst we participate in the Review, we are aiming to build political support to ensure that guidance and our sector is reopened in time for the 2021 season.
