The Outdoor Learning Project at Everett Crowley Park
The Outdoor Learning Project is a partnership between the Park Board, Everett Crowley Park Committee, CityStudio Vancouver, and the SFU Semester in Dialogue that will explore the concepts of outdoor learning in the city. This initiative is supported with the help of the Vancouver Foundation.
Partners will collaborate with the community to build outdoor learning spaces in Everett Crowley Park that enhance the experiences of all park users.
Outdoor learning happens in nature, not indoor classrooms, to reconnect us with the natural world we live in. This way, we become more aware of our ongoing and shifting relationship with nature in the immediate urban environment.
This project gives students the opportunity to co-create learning spaces in Vancouver parks, where teachers and students of all ages can have engaging and meaningful experiences in nature. It will also help us identify other opportunities in Vancouver parks and community centres.
