This 800-word article was a commercial commission by L’Obra Social, an educational project supported by the cultural foundation of the Spanish bank, La Caixa. The article explores histories of outdoor education in the light of current anxieties about children’s lack of contact with nature. It draws on Pollen’s research into the early twentieth century woodcraft movement in order to provide critical context for new educational practices that teach children outdoor skills. The final version appeared in a Spanish language translation as l’Altra Escola [The Other School].
