Nature Interpretation for Children and Young People in the Nordic Countries

This TEMA-Nord report is a result of a one-year project with all of the Nordic countries participating. The primary goal of the project has been to collect, develop and mediate a series of good examples of how nature interpretation, aimed at children and young people, can encourage children's understanding of nature, and inspire them to involve themselves with questions on humans nature and thus help contribute to sustainable development. Several issues should be considered when planning nature interpretation activities if nature interpretation aims to lead to sustainable development. These points of view are concerned especially with how nature interpreters can encourage children and young people to take ownership, to be involved with their body and mind, and to reflect and put the experience and the activities in nature into a wider context.

One of the central aims of this project has been to collect and develop good and interesting examples of nature interpretation activities in the Nordic countries that can take place in one of three areas: Protected natural areas, peri-urban nature and/or culture environments. Furthermore, each example highlights one or more of the seven perspectives that can contribute to a better understanding of nature and contribute to sustainable development.
