Designing for Play in Nature

Robin C. Moore, Raleigh, NC

ABSTRACT: “A healthy planet and healthy childhood are intimately connected”, emphasized Robin Moore, Professor of Landscape Architecture at North Carolina State University, Director of the Natural Learning Institute. Pure play, out of sight of adults, usually with friends and peers, is key to the way children learn - tacitly, through direct experience. Recreation and education are embedded in a well-designed, compelling place that offers interesting, exciting rewards for exploration and play.

ABSTRACT: Codes Red, White and Blue
We are confronting absolutely urgent threats. The time for action is upon us.

The first thing we learn at the hospital is Codes. Code Blue is when someone is dying. Code Red is a fire or a trauma, a natural disaster. Code White is a pediatric medical emergency. I think we are dealing with Codes Red, White and Blue.”

The Challenge

Suzanne H. Crowhurst Lennard, Portland, OR

ABSTRACT: We have reached a major turning point in city-making! It is now widely recognized that sprawling, auto-dependent development and abandonment of the inner city have helped cause not only an ecological crisis, but also a social and health crisis. Children are the first to suffer – and they suffer more deeply. Physical health, social and emotional health, and all aspects of child development are negatively affected.
