Nordic Adventure – Connecting Children with Nature
International Conference in Copenhagen and Malmö September 10-13, 2013.
Nordic children get out in nature regardless of the weather and season. Being in nature is essential and nature is not dangerous if you are familiar with it.
Denmark, Sweden and Norway have since long worked with adventure and nature playgrounds, school gardens and green school grounds, forest and outdoor preschools, public manned playgrounds, education for sustainable development, marine environment exploration and several other nature based initiatives for children.
We want to share and discuss standing Nordic actions and international research with children’s ambassadors from around the globe who advocate for the importance of connecting children with nature. We hope to see you and learn from you too.
The conference will be a mixture of plenary sessions, presentations, site visits and social experiences. Language on the conference will be English.
