Inclusive Play

Webinar description

Statistics show us that children and parents with mobility and sensory problems or disabilities don’t have access to public playgrounds. This is a health and well-being as well as an equity issue for communities. So how can we make public playgrounds inclusive of diverse user needs, accessible, fun, and usable 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 practice tips for the design of attractive, active, and fun playgrounds for all, that are truly inclusive.
