What is Outdoor Classroom Day?

Outdoor Classroom Day is a global campaign to celebrate and inspire outdoor learning and play. On the day, thousands of schools around the world take lessons outdoors and prioritise playtime. In 2017, over 2 million children worldwide took part, more than 115,000 of those were in India.

Outdoor learning improves children’s health, engages them with learning and leads to a greater connection with nature. Play not only teaches critical life skills such as resilience, teamwork and creativity, but is central to children’s enjoyment of childhood.

It’s easy to get involved and there is something everyone can do!

If you’re a teacher and new to outdoor learning, why not use Outdoor Classroom Day to try it out? If you already get outdoors regularly, use the day to celebrate what you’re doing and inspire other teachers around the world to join in.

If you’re a parent, talk to your child’s school about the importance of outdoor learning and play and encourage them to get involved. Think about how you can spend more time outdoors as a family too and inspire other parents to do the same.

If you work for an organisation that cares about children, nature, education or the environment, speak to us about how you can get involved. We’re always looking for partners to help spread the message far and wide.

The next Outdoor Classroom Day will be on Thursday 1 November. Due to the incredible diversity of our country, we understand that not all schools will be able to celebrate on this day. If you can’t celebrate on Thursday 1 November, please still register and simply celebrate on a day that suits your school. Sign up below and help build a movement that gets children outdoors to play and learn every day!

Education is not only learning from books or memorising facts, but also learning how to look...to listen to the birds, see the sky, the extraordinary beauty of a tree...and to feel with them.
