The site aims to inform, inspire and equip elementary and secondary school teachers in Quebec interested in outdoor education. The platform is intended to be an evolving and collaborative space, which will improve over time and with the experience acquired. “We want the site to reflect the expertise we have here in Quebec: varied experiences and four seasons allowing students of all ages and from all backgrounds to move, learn and flourish outdoors.

Visitors will find informative and inspiring articles on the site, a bank of collaborative educational activities, a list of external resources as well as examples of outdoor classroom layouts. The content of the site will be fed by the Foundation and thanks to the collaboration of many individuals and organizations.

Project partners

The website is a realization of the Monique-Fitz-Back Foundation. It was created by Agence Salto. The Foundation warmly thanks the financial partners of the project: the McConnell Foundation, M361 and the Quebec Ministry of Education and Higher Education. Thank you also to our collaborator Nature Québec as well as to all the collaborators who worked on the content of the site. The Monique-Fitz-Back Foundation works to stimulate social and environmental commitment and to foster hope among young people in Quebec. Since its creation in 2006, more than 100,000 young people from all administrative regions of Quebec have been made aware of sustainable development through the Foundation's projects, which makes it one of the most important organizations in the field.
