EDC believes outdoor, child-led, free play connects children to their inner nature and the natural world around them.
Outdoor free play allows children to explore, find adventure, connect with, and adapt their environments as well as build their capabilities.
Outdoor free play supports their health, wellbeing, sense of inclusion, resilience, and long-term interest in environmental stewardship.
Bringing back outdoor free play for children means transforming schools and communities so they respect children’s basic needs for self-determination, social connection, and natural environments.

Our EarthPLAY programs, policies, and campaigns provide extensive resources to support transforming our schools and local communities into vibrant, socially rich, nature-connected communities.

Outdoor play is a child’s most natural way of learning about themselves, their community, their environment.
