Sustainability In Outdoor Education

I’m a vocal critic of the lack of sustainability in outdoor education and recreation. I’ve said numerous times that minimum impact is really displaced impact, in that the impact is considerable but is not felt in the area where people recreate. Northland College has addressed the problem. They’ve put together a web page about their research:

As Sustainable As Possible: A Working Model to Assess and Improve the Sustainability of Outdoor Education and Recreation.

You can read all about it on their website. Great work by professor Paul Van Horn and our own Paul Sveum, along with the other students and professors who worked on the project. Hopefully it will bring the issue into the mainstream.

Anything that appears to be an error in spelling or grammar is actually the author’s clever use of the vernacular, and as such is not an error, but rather a carefully placed literary device demonstrating prodigious artistic prowess.
