CHILDHOOD SUMMIT 2021: SUB THEMES

Children form thoughts, make decisions, and have preferences from a really young age. Children share these in many different ways, such as drawing, dancing, pointing, signing, building -the list goes on! The problem is children aren't always asked and listened to. The 2021 Childhood Summit will hear from children and explore why it's important for them to have their say on their play and to understand the role of an adult in this. Check out any presentation, action group or workshop which has this theme.

How do we support capacity building for play? Another consideration is, once capacity for play has been built, how can it be sustained? Being playful involves many facets of society, meaning 'Playful capacity building and sustainment' must be present across community, neighbourhoods, policies and programming - anywhere and anything which has the power to impact children. The presentations, action groups or workshops which have this theme, will explore how grown-ups and children are already doing this, and how we can continue to build and sustain play.

A play-based strategy are any concepts, ideas or actions which promote high quality play. If you would like to hear about current play-based strategies which are happening across Logan and Brisbane, look for the presentations, action groups or workshops which are related to this theme. Some of these strategies have been in place for forty years now! Listen to their stories, successes, and challenges - and feel free to ask some questions.

The benefits of Play have been researched since the 1890's by the likes of Granville Stanley Hall. Modern-day researchers are building upon this knowledge base, and have many insights to offer. If you want to know more about the most recent research on play (both nationally and internationally) look for the presentations, action groups and workshops which are identified by the Play-full research theme.
