Muddy Hands presents the evidence for outdoor learning and play. It draws on data from the Outdoor Classroom Day 2017 survey, as well as findings from a wide range of literature that highlights the benefits, barriers and solutions to getting children outdoors.
The report looks at how schools can act as catalysts in their communities to help increase opportunities for children to play not only at school, but outside of the school gates. Since the campaign started in the UK in 2011 over 40,000 schools in more than 100 countries have taken part. So, whether you call it Aprendiendo al Aire Libre, تعلم في الهواء الطلق, Belajar Di Luar Kelas or Outdoor Classroom Day, it all means helping children to get outside and reach their full potential as happy, healthy people.
