The Real Play Coalition - To Play is to Learn

Suitable for 0-15 years

Best Bits

Did you know! 56% of children continue to spend less time outdoors than maximum security prisoners in the US and it is not yet known the impact this will have on their ability to become future leaders, creators and explorers will become. The more kids play today, the more prepared future generations will be. Play is needed to endow us with leaders who can resolve conflict, problem solve, build socially connected communities and inspire society to flourish.

The Real Play Coalition was, therefore, put together to create a movement that prioritises the importance of play as not something that only lets children be children, but as something that sparks the fire for a child’s development and learning.
