Learning through Landscapes is the only UK charity specialising in enhancing outdoor learning and play for children. Their vision is that every child benefits from stimulating outdoor learning and play in their education.

They aim to help children to connect with nature, be more active, be more engaged with their learning, develop their social skills and have fun!

Where possible, Learning through Landscapes encourages young people to have a say in the way their grounds are used and improved.  As a result they learn to create and look after something valuable; their self-esteem grows and their behaviour improves, along with their potential to learn and achieve.

The charity focus their resources on educational settings, because they believe that this is where children will derive the greatest benefit. The school playground is the one outside space that children have safe, frequent access to.

This approach is guided by three core values which guide everything they do:

  • Inspiring by sharing good practice and creative ideas.
  • Enabling schools and settings to engage their children to find solutions to their own needs.
  • Influencing the policy environment within which schools and settings operate.
