“O.U.T – A Training Course on Outdoor Education” aims at exploring the concept, principles and practice of outdoor education and the way they can contribute to the efficiency of youth work and also to the development of healthy and pro-active lifestyles.

• To experience outdoor educational activities of a wide variety and diversity towards participants’
enhancement of personal and social-interaction capacities;
• To offer an interactive meeting space for youth workers working in the European context in order to
exchange good practice relevant to outdoor education;
• To explore the principles and practices of experiential learning and their implication in outdoor
• To encourage participants to use and develop the practice of outdoor education according to their work
• To offer a participatory programme of activities ensuring everyone’s active involvement in its evolution;
• To empower participants in acting as multipliers so that they build up to the experience gained during
the course and having it spread to relevant stakeholders;
• To stimulate participants interest in different, ecological, healthy and responsible lifestyles;
• To explore possibilities for future cooperation among participants namely in the field of outdoor
education but not exclusively.
