A Conference on Play? You Bet!

A conference on play? Yes, you read correctly. I will be attending the U.S. Play Coalition‘s Conference on the Value of Play in Clemson, S.C., in February.

I’ll be joining educators, parents, play professionals, health professionals, parks and recreation programmers, landscape architects, playground designers, psychologists, anthropologists, advocates, and more from around the world to discuss and learn about play.

I’ll learn about the latest research highlighting the importance of play as a crucial part of all of our lives, regardless of age or ability. I’m eager to share what I learn with all of you.

Read some of the latest news about play.

My Slow News archive also contains a lot of information about the value of play to every area of our lives.

  1. What a wonderful opportunity! Will be anxious to hear what all you learn. All the know is all our kiddos do lot’s of serious play at the farm which is GREAT!

  2. Thanks, Weekend Cowgirl! I’m sure there is wonderful (serious) play going on at the farm. Thanks for the good cheer. I will definitely report back.
