Are we blindly betraying the environment we are trying to save? An opinion piece from Dave Gurnett

Dave Gurnett has worked in the sector for over 30 years and has been Education Outreach Officer for Exmoor National Park for the last 15 years. Dave states “one of my worrying observations is that despite my efforts to engage children with the outdoors, and I have tried with over 122,000, the young teachers I see today are more cautious and less accustomed to the outdoors themselves than they were twenty years ago. This, I suggest, is because they have not had outdoor play experiences themselves as children and thus need more ‘hand-holding’ in their training.”
