Environmental education is an effort to strengthen the bond between people and the natural environment. In Sweden, the concept friluftsliv refers to a tradition characterized by respect and care for the environment along with an active physical involvement with the natural world. Friluftsliv is my philosophy of environmental education! A strong bond between people and the natural world comes from direct, physical, meaningful and often joyful experiences and leads to heightened understanding. Quality environmental education facilitates meaningful experience and supports it via considered reflection and structured study.
