The April 2023 issue of JOEE has six papers, many of which champion the inclusion of Outdoor Ed at all levels (Kindergarten through to Tertiary). There’s applied examples to support teachers to plan and facilitate immersive outdoor experiences that promote learning; a review of Iran’s Outdoor Nature Schoolsa and New Zealand’s Adventure Therapy community; benefits of gardening programs and outdoor ed programs for kindergartens; and a Florida Eco-Centre in the midst of a gas-fired powered plant. There is also a review of a book on the development of children’s identity through nature.
