The December 2023 Issue of JOEE is a special issue on Risky play and learning in the outdoors for educational, developmental, and health purposes. It features 9 papers that explore child and/or adolescent exposure to risk-taking behaviours in the outdoors. The papers examine how the opportunities and access to risky learning spaces (both natural and human-made), are designed and used and whether this encourages children to play, learn, or develop cognitively, socially, or physically.
