Get an insight knowledge of how OUTDOOR Play and Learning contribute to social education in a Danish context.


We are pleased to be able to invite you to a week with focus on Social Education in a Danish outdoor play and learning context.

Here you will get an insight in knowledge, research and methods in didactics and education with competent academic staff, groups of students as well as Danish schools and pedagogical institutions.

Doing the week, we will visit some of our partner institutions with experiences in outdoor learning activities, some for adults with specials needs and some for children in general. There will be traditional lectures but some of the time we will be outdoor getting first hand experiences with outdoor play and learning, so please bring clothing suitable for November in Denmark – it might be cold and rainy, but hopefully the sun will shine.

Finally yet importantly, we have organized a program that can offer you some social and cultural events with colleagues from an international range of institutions in order to make the most of your stay with us in the lovely city of Holstebro.
