This event is part of Northwest Children's Play Week and will be led by David Bond who is the director of the documentary film Project Wild Thing. Bond is visiting Portland from the UK for this and other events in a 5-day period.
We will work in small groups to collaboratively discuss and create ideas to connect Oregon's children to nature and improve their health through improved opportunities for free play. We seek participation from a diverse group of talents including: Coder/Developers, Educators, Nature Geeks, Medical Professionals, Producers, Copywriters, Design Thinkers, Strategists, Communication Gurus, Funding Experts, Children's Advocates, Business Leaders, and Concerned Citizens.
Our goal is to combine the skills, systems, and experiences of a diverse group of individuals and organizations who can collectively work to overcome barriers, share ideas, and initiate cooperative programs to get Oregon’s kids outdoors playing more often. Business leaders, government organizations, nonprofit organizations and private citizens interested in supporting and promoting healthy play and nature connection for children are invited to attend.
