Outdoor Education Week aims to raise public awareness of the how Outdoor Education helps individuals learn about themselves, the people in the groups with whom they work and about the environment that they are spending their time in.
Through this week we hope to encourage young people to be actively learning outside the classroom.

5 young blokes from the Sunshine Coast were stuck indoors this summer whilst the floods were on in Queensland. They put together this little video clip to help pass the time. It has become a world wide sensation.
We are calling on the Outdoor Education community to generate their tribute to the Harlem Shake outdoor Ed style.
Help to promote Outdoor Education Week this year by uploading your Harlem Shake video to You Tube. Please add the following information in your video clip description.

HOW CAN ANYONE BE INVOLVED?
Go for a walk with your group outside during the week. Ask the group to stop three times and observe three things. They share these observations with other group members.
1. What do I notice about myself? (eg. I’ve got heaps of energy)
2. What do I notice about other people? (eg. Steve looks a bit sad today)
3. What do I notice about this place ? (eg. I wonder what that bird is? It sounds amazing)
If you can do these things, you’re on your way to doing some Outdoor Education!
