2013 Conference on the Value of Play: Taking Action!

This is a peer-reviewed conference, ensuring that presentations will be of the highest quality.  The last conference attracted more than 200 people from a range of disciplines – educators, parents, health professionals, landscape architects, playground designers, parks and recreation experts, and engaged citizens from across the country and the globe.

What you’ll take away from the conference:

  • New research from leading academics in the field.

  • Actions and strategies to help incorporate play into our daily lives.
  • New connections with others focused on increasing awareness of the value of play.
