Let’s play!

The fun theory goes like this: ‘something as simple as fun is the easiest way to change people’s behaviour for the better.’ So how can we apply this to places? Easy – make them fun places to be, where people want to shop, interact and enjoy.

We’ve been searching for the great examples of adding a little fun and play into public spaces and we’ve found some, then added them to a powerpoint so you can present the idea to your committees and get some buy in and what should be very simple interventions to make your area more fun! We hope you find it inspiring…

Here’s the powerpoint: 5_examples_of_play_in_public_places

Need it in another format? No problems, let us know.

  1. Wow! I love the idea of Play. I live in a small rural community and dream of doing some of the things shown in the PPP in our town. I am sure it would inject enthusiasm and reinvigorate a vision for the future. So inspiring to see it really is possible.

  2. Please let me know if you’re looking for a writer for your weblog. You have some really great articles and I believe I would be a good asset. If you ever want to take some of the load off, I’d really like to write some material for your blog in exchange for a link back to mine.
    Please shoot me an email if interested. Thanks!
