Abstract

Little is known about the role of Outdoor Education for immigrants’ inclusion in Europe. This brief article tries to fill the gap on this poorly recognized topic, presenting researches and experiences which are able of bridging issues such as: immigration policy, use of green public spaces, and Outdoor programmes. A theoretical framework is also needed, to recognize a structurally relevant function of Outdoor experiences in several dimensions like inclusion, health and learning. Outdoor Education can be effective not only for recreational use, but also for culturally relevant learning tasks, so that, by means of specific Outdoor Learning programmes, it can improve immigrants’ inclusion within European societies.
