The Outdoor Education Centre Line

A poster which uses the idea that as we travel from birth to adulthood, Outdoor Education can play a key role in someone positively contributing to society. The  train line analogy explains the journey we go on when engaged with the outdoors and the consequences of either engaging with or not engaging with nature.

This as a free resource, so please download it (here) to share or print it off to help promote the importance of Outdoor Education Centres. Produced in support of the campaign #saveoutdoored, supporting the work of UK Outdoors.
