Abstract [en]

This paper presents an environmental ethical analysis of two Swedish out door education practices; I Ur och Skur and Naturskolan. The main aim of the analysis is to clarify whether it is possible to detect certain environmental ethical orientations in the particular out door education practices. The results of an in-depth reading of key texts from the selected out door education practices are presented using environmental ethical positions from the well-known intrinsic value discourse in environmental ethics, key positions in radical ecology and a theoretical framework from environmental psychology. The study shows a strong tendency towards instrumental transformative values of nature and ecogenic identifications with nature-others such as animals and rocks, which includes an anthropomorph and physiomorph circle of interpretation of nature experiences. Finally, based on the results we suggest a number of analytic questions that can be further developed into environmental content analysis of empirical data and text.
