The importance to create spaces for play.

Hi, this is Fran from Spain. Im really interested in the Ideo community and i hope my ideas will help in the world changing. I've bee working several times with children as camp leader and counselor. with thoose jobs i could comprobate how important is the game in the early childhood. But the problem it's that even in the first world we sometimes don't have exclusive places to have the kids playing and creating their own communities. In my opinions this is a real open topic: In first place, What is a space for play? it could be every place you think it ill be safe for playing, a park, a classroom or any kind of space, where with not so much resorces you could develope their skills.

We have to create safe ploaces for playing, it could be any place all over the world. A park, a classroom, or even a street without traffic. The most important part of this are the human resources you have to develope it. We should creat small groups with our neighbours, where we can leave the children doing some activities directed by compromised people.

Is this an idea that you or your organization would like to take forward?

  • Yes. I am looking for partners that might be interested in taking this idea forward in their communities.
