Date: 4 October 2023 (2:00 pm – 4:00 pm)
Free webinar – online via Zoom
Outdoor play is important for children’s health, well-being and happiness, but we see a decline in
this type of play. Children of all ages consistently say that playing and meeting up with their friends is important to them. The outdoors continues to be their favourite place to play.
Public places are important to children and teenagers, helping them to explore and play in their
neighbourhoods. This webinar will report on research which:
- explores play and physical activity
• discusses the wants and needs of teenagers in their local communities and the development of
an app (RPlace) that will facilitate advocacy work.
