Aberdeen Biodiversity Centre are pleased to announce their involvement in the Aberdeen network launch of the Upstart Campaign, which is a national campaign for a kindergarten stage of schooling, with a focus on outdoor learning. This dovetails nicely with the centre's focus on outdoor learning which evidence suggests has a positive impact on physical health and wellbeing and also helps children and young people to connect with nature and develop a lifelong interest in the environment and sustainability.
