NGO Outdoor Kids is a strong community of around 20 families who
are enthusiastic about nature, outdoor learning, autonomous and unstructured
free play and sustainability (reuse, upcycling, gardening). We are akin to an urban eco-village in
Tartu, taking care of the community house and the garden, promoting outdoor
learning, sustainable lifestyle and innovation in education.
NGO started the first outdoor kindergarten in Estonia in 2014.
2020 we started a democratic after-school outdoor activity for the age 7-12. Our aim is to introduce the "junk playground" model as an innovative approach in local youth work.
