Nature-based learning
for every child

The social impact project Escola Lá Fora intends to respond to the effective needs of children and families in Lisbon, Almada e Ericeira with an innovative educational response that brings proven benefits to children's physical and psychological health.


We provide activities based in the Forest School model, always in a natural context (woods or forest), so that children can develop a connection with nature, to promote the knowledge of biodiversity and the respect for nature.

We are in Lisbon, Almada and Ericeira.

Forest School model

The Forest School methodology provides nature-based learning sessions focused on the individuality of every child and the importance of free range play, based on observation, collaboration, exploration and discovery.

It aims at the integral development of children, with a special focus on resilience, confidence, independence and creativity.

Innovative educational response

We help children become more confident, resilient, creative and gain problem-solving skills. We do it by proposing challenges like the use of tools, building shelters and exploring natural spaces.

Child-centered learning

We promote independence, creativity and the learning of arts techniques, using mostly natural materials.
