The Learning in Local Greenspace project

Project Overview

This outdoor learning project was led by NatureScot as part of the Scottish Biodiversity Strategy Route Map to 2020. It directly supported 115 schools serving or located in disadvantaged communities across Scotland to access and use their local greenspace, resulting in:

  • teachers taking learning outdoors more frequently in school grounds and local greenspaces and across most subject areas;
  • improved teacher confidence in taking learning outdoors;
  • pupils more engaged in learning outdoors;
  • pupils better connected with nature.
