Outdoor Classroom Day 2017


Outdoor Classroom Day is a day to celebrate and inspire outdoor learning and play. On Thursday 18 May 2017, thousands of schools around the world will take lessons outside and prioritise playtime.

If you’re a teacher use the day to celebrate outdoor learning and inspire other teachers to join in.

If you’re a parent, talk to your child’s school about the importance of outdoor learning and play. Ask them how they will get involved and offer to help out on the day if they need extra support.

If you work for an organisation that has an interest or responsibility for children, nature, education or the environment get involved.

There are lots of resources, including advice and guidance to help get you started. Sign up to take part and help build a movement that gets children outdoors to learn and play every day!
