Nature and Joy First: Friluftsliv, the Norwegian Notion of Outdoor Life
Friluftsliv: the word, the meanings, the values, is explored with attention to the implications for parks and communities. Stories of outdoor life in Norway and historical and political cultural differences and similarities will serve to show cultural understandings that are richly informative to Canadian outdoor educator’s and park staff. The Norwegian Trekking Association (a hut to hut national trails network) and allemansratt - the right of public access are specific traditions that are explored in this presentation.
