The network group, which has been in existence for about ten years, focuses on:
- Student and teacher exchanges
- A joint Nordic outdoor life program
- Holding research seminars and practical educational arrangements connected with outdoor life in the Nordic countries
Seven institutions takes part – namely: the University of Copenhagen, the University of Gothenburg, the Swedish School of Sport and Health Sciences, Örebro University, Telemark University and the Iceland School of Education.
The group meets each year and communicates via e-mail and newsletters and has established a Master's degree in Nordic Open Air Life.
