The third person I interviewed is the one who decided to use the method in the project I have looked in to. By using outdoor pedagogy, in the way they do in EDUQ, it is possible to show the youths other perspectives. In another environment than the classroom the youths can see and understand other ways of living and thinking. When using the nature the youths can feel stronger and manage to handle new things and learn to use their own qualities in a new way. The possibility to increase the youths Sense of Coherence is bigger when using outdoor pedagogy. (Less)
