The progressive landscape of Asia has re-shaped the role of the education sector as a pillar for the mobility of students, sustainable human resource, and a game changer for the talent of the future workforce. Globally, quality of education is higher. More than half of the world’s international schools are based in Asia and the position of Asian universities in world university rankings is scoring higher due to the increase and rapid improvement of scientific publications from Asian universities.

Increasingly in Asia, outdoor learning activities have also become part of a widely implemented learning method aimed at developing knowledge, increasing motivation levels and enhancing life skills of students outside conventional academic establishments.

These activities are often in the form of overseas trips to remote locations where students and staff may face travel-related risks which impact their health, safety and wellbeing due to the varying standards of security and medical care.
