Abstract - Outdoor activities, green education and landscaping

Outdoor sport and activities in green nature are an important part of popular sport. But the practices of ‘green’ activity are diverse. The article describes the historical background of Danish outdoor sports, changing through 200 years. This has resulted in different models of practice with different educational consequences: traditional ‘outdoor life’, activities of mastering, sports cross, adventure sport, green healthy motion. These models have different consequences for the planning of landscape and for the understanding of ‘nature’: nature as ecology, as landscape, as scene, as world of activities, as cultural creation. Nature is not one, but a cultural diversity.
