Outdoor Education Bill - Featured Image

The Scottish Conservatives recognise that outdoor residential experiences enrich the lives of young people. They provide them with a knowledge and appreciation of environments and communities other than those with which they are most familiar, and they help build confidence and self-esteem.

It is important that young people from deprived backgrounds can access the same experience as their peers. We also believe that after a difficult two years during Covid outdoor education is needed for our young people more than ever.

The Outdoor Education Bill proposes new legislation to ensure that all young people between 12-16 years old have the opportunity to experience at least one week of residential outdoor education. Scottish Conservative MSP Liz Smith has spoken out several times in support of residential outdoor centres and has launched the formal consultation period on her Member’s Bill.

We have now published the consultation, please share your views.
