The Right to Play – Playful Spaces for All

What if we explored issues of play in the city – across the generations – with a Right to Play? Our city planning has become more and more transactional and underestimated the importance of play to humans. In an era where most cities have more car parks than playgrounds we could humanise environments and learning opportunities through playfulness at work, at home and the everyday public realm. Approaching this through the perspective of Rights could explore deep implications for such diverse realms as labour legislation, the care system and housing.

Example

The Right to Play (UK)

Wales introduced a Play Policy in 2002, emphasising the need for the provision of play environments and a detailed implementation plan with funding specifically for play.
