Purpose and Method

The coronavirus pandemic impact study is an examination of the impacts of the coronavirus pandemic on the outdoor and adventure education fields. The purpose of this study is to gather the collective wisdom of people engaged in outdoor and adventure education by asking that you share the changes you have made, or will likely make, in your program and how you envision remaining sustainable in the future. To that extent, we have designed a set of general questions and four themes as currently relevant to this study:

16 General Questions
Theme 1: Safety and Risk Management
Theme 2: Operations, Logistics, and Financial Solvency 
Theme 3: The Nature of Outdoor Programming
Theme 4: Changing Clientele & Staff

While you are welcome to contribute to the collective knowledge in all areas, we ask that you answer the general questions and one theme in full.
