Tweens and Teens: 7 Considerations for Tween and Teen Outdoor Play

On a global scale, only around 23% of all 11 to 17-year-olds meet the minimum recommendations for physical activity. This is devastating, especially as tweens and teens repeatedly state that they like playful physical activity with friends. They like outdoor play and play areas, as long as the design accommodates them and not only younger children. 

Join this webinar to learn new insights and evidence around teenage play and get 6 tips for creating playful physical activity areas for ages 10+.
