Griffin Longley

CEO, Nature Play WA

Griffin Longley is the CEO of Nature Play WA, an inaugural Board Member of the WA Parks Foundation, an award-winning journalist, a former weekly columnist with The West Australian Newspaper, and the founder of a program for at risk kids in the Midland, Fremantle and Mandurah areas called Night Hoops.

In 2010 the WA Department of Sport and Recreation gave Griffin the task of building an incorporated association, Nature Play WA Inc. to promote the importance of unstructured play outside and in nature.

Nature Play is now a successful organisation with an international reputation for innovative programs that increase awareness of the benefits of unstructured play outdoors and has spread to South Australia, Queensland and the ACT.

The organisation’s flagship program, the Passport to an Amazing Childhood, provides hundreds of outdoor activity ideas and bridges the divide between the digital world and outdoor play and has been delivered to more than 600,000 children around Australia and has now been turned into a global app.
