The aim of this fund from Scottish Natural Heritage, is to support more young people to have regular, frequent, structured and progressive outdoor learning experiences.

The Outdoor Learning in Nature fund is a competitive fund, with a budget of £600k that will run for 2 years. Projects must be focused on young people (3-26 years) from the most deprived areas and disadvantaged backgrounds.

Scottish Natural Heritage is looking to support the implementation of a place-based progression model of outdoor learning based on:

  • The regular use of local parks and greenspace for outdoor learning by schools or groups
  • Occasional visits to nearby countryside, forest or coast planned to complement use of the school grounds, parks and local greenspace
  • Opportunities to experience some of Scotland’s 'special places' of national and international importance for their nature or landscape
