National park management have traditionally been based on what can be called a “museum ecostrategy” – a strategy in which pristine nature is the ideal and where humans are mainly seen as visiting and careful onlookers, but not creative co-producers of landscapes. Although this strategy has been important for protecting biodiversity and attracting visitors, there is also a risk that it contributes to a largely destructive separation between human activities and life-worlds here, and the rest of the living world out there. This presentation builds on an evaluation of an educational project called “Skolbäcken”, launched by the Swedish Anglers Association, with the aim to teach children about fish and fish habitats through practical restoration activities. The project and the interest shown by schools, e.g. to restore so called “pike-factories” along the Baltic Sea coast, is seen as part of a growing recognition of the fact that large scale environmental issues, such as the need for biodiversity protection as promoted in national parks, ought to be accompanied by embodied and everyday action and an understanding of the environments within reach. The presentation introduces and critically discusses the concept of Ecological Restoration Education (ERE) drawing from its conceptual roots; “ecological restoration” and “outdoor education”. The ERE-concept is set in relation to the so called “ecostrategy-framework”, which serves to illustrate different possible vantage points and landscape relationships that outdoor educators, e.g. in a national park setting, can use and foster.
