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.
Real Play Coalition and PlacemakingX led the
Real Play City Challenge to scale up
child-friendly, safe, and playful urban practice. We aimed to enable children to play and cities to build back better.
