3 BIG Lessons Learnt from The Neighbourhood Play Project. Where are all the kids?

It’s no secret that the increase of indoor sedentary childhoods and screen use has parents and experts across the globe alarmed.

Childhood has changed - and mostly not for the better.

I had been travelling around Queensland, presenting the Nature Play programs designed to help communities find ways to re-engage children with outdoor free play, when I had an epiphany about the role of the neighbourhood in a child’s ability to play.

What Nature Play QLD is all about

Nature Play QLD's mission is to increase the time Queensland kids spend in unstructured play outdoors and in nature. It is founded on the understanding that unstructured play outdoors - nature play - is fundamental to a full and healthy childhood.
