Conference Themes

Continuing in the tradition of previous International Outdoor Education Research Conferences, the aim of this conference is to build on the social, cultural and critical dimensions of research and theorizing in diverse outdoor traditions, including: education (both learning and teaching), recreation, place, sustainability and therapy. Therefore, there is no specialized conference theme and the conference welcomes all abstracts that broadly enhance the understanding, practice and research of outdoor studies.
