Suitable for parents, educators, play advocates and other industry professionals. On how to support your children’s learning through unstructured outdoor play with an evening with Peter Gray – Professor of Psychology from Boston College (USA).

Join us for this keynote talk with Peter Gray on protecting our children from play deficit disorder and a Q&A forum discussion on ‘how does outdoor play prepare children for learning?’

KEY NOTE TALK & Q&A FORUM

Description: In this fast paced world, what space is afforded to the voice of our children?

Demands grow; more school, more extra-curricular activities, more stuff. While opportunities for kids to be directors of their world shrinks; less space, less freedom, less choice, less friends, less movement, less community, less fun.

How are they going? Are they overloaded? Are they more stressed, anxious, nervous? What role does outdoor play have in amongst all this busy-ness?

During this child centred discussion we hope answer this question ‘In childhood, is LESS MORE?

Be a part of our audience, submit a relevant question for discussion. Let’s leave no stone un-turned and grow the community discussion and actions to give children the freedom to play, especially outdoors.
