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. The Real Play City Challenge aims to reclaim places to play in cities for children.
We want to support, promote and share initiatives that have potential to:
inspire more cities, placemakers, urban planners, real-estate developers and other stakeholders to take action in child-friendly and playful urban practice.
optimise, integrate and disseminate international knowledge and experience to strengthen child-friendly and playful urban practice.
enhance impact by catalysing, replicating and scaling child-friendly and playful initiatives in different contexts around the globe.
Be inspired by the frameworks to integrate play in cities
