The Outdoor PLAYbook team is an interdisciplinary group that is passionate about changing the way we think about outdoor play and learning environments. We are a collaborative group of researchers and students that come from the Faculty of Education, the Faculty of Medicine, and the School of Architecture and Landscape Architecture. Throughout the development of the Outdoor PLAYbook we have been working in close partnership with the Vancouver School Board, parents, teachers, and students at individual schools. Our goal is to inspire the creation of dynamic outdoor public spaces that promote health and educational experiences, particularly for children and youth, and improve the social and ecological well being of communities.
