Inclusive Play

Webinar description

Statistics show us that children and parents with mobility and sensory requirements don’t have sufficient access to public playgrounds. This is a health, well-being and equity issue for communities around the world. So how can we make public playgrounds inclusive of diverse user needs, and accessible, fun places for all abilities? How can inclusive playgrounds cater to all and still be thrilling, without disproportionate costs? Join this KOMPAN Play Institute webinar to learn the new science-based practices for designing attractive, fun and truly inclusive playgrounds for all.
