RAISING AWARENESS ABOUT THE NECESSITY OF UNSTRUCTURED PLAY

February 4, 2015, was the first annual Global School Play Day for students in schools around the world. In year one, over 65,000 students participated!  Over 177,000 students took part in 2016. In 2017, over 283,000 kids celebrated Global School Play Day. Can we reach 500,000 students in 2018?  

In his TEDx lecture, Peter Gray clearly argues the case that today's kids do not grow up playing and this has negatively impacted them in many ways. It's time we return the gift of play to this generation.

At Playground Professionals, we bring today's play news and views to you in one convenient webpage.
