Empowering Youth and Communities Through Unstructured Play in Nature

The Child and Nature Alliance has published their first podcast in partnership with Evergreen Brickworks and the Trillium Foundation. This is the first of a series of podcasts that will focus on highlighting the Forest and Nature School pedagogy.

In the podcast, host Stephanie Smith speaks with Gemma and Natalia, two youth play animators on their experiences learning how to ‘unlearn’ structured play, letting children guide play, and witnessing the amazing things that happen when children are given permission to explore their own boundaries in risky play.
