Outdoor Learning in Northern Ireland

Northern Ireland is a landscape crisscrossed by uplands and low mountains (Sperrin, Mourne, and the (volcanic in origin) Antrim Plateau). Arguably the most valuable landform is Lough Neagh, the largest freshwater lake in the United Kingdom and one of the largest in western Europe, and the most striking feature is the thousands of interlocking basalt columns (some reaching 12 meters high) of the Giant's Causeway world heritage site. The variety of coastal and inland habitats are home to a wide array of providers including, commercial residential centres, adventure challenge courses, educational establishments delivering bespoke outdoor courses, voluntary organisations, clubs and individual practitioners who deliver a diverse range of high quality outdoor learning opportunities.

The Institute is keen to support and represent educators, individuals and organisations providing Outdoor Learning in Northern Ireland. Get in touch with us with your views and projects.
