Do Modern Kids Need Neighbourhoods Anymore?

A Caboolture Neighbourhood Nature Play Community Discussion

APRIL 18th, 6.30pm to 8.30pm

Presented by Nature Play QLD

Do you have a vibrant neighbourhood filled with kids playing-out regularly, connected, being active and social?


Is your neighbourhood like most modern urban streets, empty with no children playing and mostly a place for cars?


Either way we need your input, we want to hear your story and we want to explore the possibility of starting a journey of returning the neighbourhood as a place for kids to play, connect and thrive.

Connected neighbourhoods are safe and healthy places for all

Please join us for this very important local conversation to explore ‘Do our children need a neighbourhood anymore’? and ‘is a neighbourhood as important as adequate nutrition, for our kid’s health and development?


The evening schedule:

  • Key Note- Importance of Children’s Neighbourhood Play from Hyahno Moser- Program Manager for Nature Play QLD 
  • Outline of Walking Together Project- a local initiative aiming to explore the possibility of activating a neighbourhood in Caboolture
  • Free Networking Supper
  • Facilitated panel/audience conversation centered on- Maybe Kids Don’t Need Neighbourhoods Anymore? (including local neighbourhood champions)





Hyahno Moser is the Program Manager for Nature Play QLD. He is also a father of 4 kids and is a big believer in neighbourhood play and connected communities;

“Childhood is more than just a number of days and not only a stage of development, it happens within the context of a place and space. In my mind, our neighbourhoods are the most important outdoor play and developmental resource we can give our children. They need it to grow super happy healthy and strong and to support their overall development across the total span of childhood”.
