Coffee Hour: The Importance Of Outdoor Education

Author: Tsukuba Information Center, Issue: July 2006, Topic: Coffee Hour

In recent years we have seen rapid advances in the development of IT and it continues to grow at every moment of everyday. These developments have made huge changes in our daily life, allowing us to obtain information and products immediately from all over the world. However, it seems the more IT develops, the more opportunities to have contact with nature and outdoor experiences decline.

Mr. David Legault will tell us about the beauty in nature, as well as the importance of experiencing outdoor activities, especially for youth. He has participated in many outdoor activities including camping, survival trips and canoeing and says he learned as much from camping as he did from sitting in the classroom at a school. Mr. Legault has been a leader in outdoor education in both Canada and U.S. since he was sixteen. He says that the youth camps give children the opportunity to learn and experience new things outside the family setting while developing new skills. It also increases their self-esteem.

Coffee Hour July will be a good opportunity to hear Mr. Legault’s experiences in outdoor education and to learn more about the beauty of nature. We look forward to seeing you!

This is a regular event hosted by the Tsukuba Information Center usually on the 4th Wednesday of the month.
