Children and the Outdoors

The principal objective of this research project is to review existing research and relevant literature around contact with the outdoors and natural heritage for children aged 5 to 12, from the perspective of children’s rights to education, health and wellbeing. This includes analysing current trends and identifying gaps in the research on this subject, particularly in the Irish context.
