Freedom to play?

Recent studies have shown that children should play outside in natural environments to ensure healthy physical and emotional development. Science centres and museums are designing exhibit spaces using real and artificial representations of nature. Is there enough spatial freedom in our environment exhibitions designed especially for children? Are these spaces conducive to creativity and spontaneous learning? Do we organize activities outside museums which are connected to nature? In a “world café” format, institutions will briefly present their new space for children to start the discussion about freedom and the process of creativity and learning. Participants will then gather in small groups to assess the questions at hand and develop proposals to enhance play-oriented freedom.
