Play is essential for children to thrive now and in the future, but many urban environments lack opportunities or a city-wide strategy for play.

 

That’s why the Real Play City Challenge aims to reclaim places to play in cities for children.

Let’s reclaim places to play in cities

Why child-friendly, safe and playful placemaking?

Child-friendly, safe, and playful urban initiatives have great potential:

they are smart investments with impact.

These initiatives are especially important now with children and families facing financial, social, and emotional pressures during the COVID-19 pandemic.
