The Campaign seeks to show that life is best approached in a spirit of exploration, adventure and enterprise; to influence and better inform attitudes towards risk; to build wider recognition that chance, unforeseen circumstances and uncertainty are inescapable features of life and that absolute safety is unachievable; and to demonstrate that sensible education and preparation enable an appropriate balance to be achieved between risk & safety and achievement & opportunity.

Probably the finest example of proportional reporting available, here we have the numbers and arguments in one easily understood page.    The only thing left to ponder is whether, if your understanding of risk in Outdoor Learning is very far from these facts, how well your understanding of other things is also at variance to truth.
