PLaTO-Net
(Play, Learn, and Teach Outdoors Network)

A global network of thought-leaders interested in advancing research and practice related to outdoor play, risky play, outdoor learning and teaching through play

Outdoor Play Canada aims to establish a global network of thought-leaders interested in advancing research and practice related to outdoor play, risky play, outdoor learning and teaching through play. PLaTO-Net’s vision is a world where all people, regardless of age, gender, race/ethnicity, income, or medical conditions, are afforded the opportunity to play and learn in natural environments and have access to quality outdoor experiences. PLaTO-Net’s mission is to bring interested leaders, researchers, educators, stakeholders, and policy makers together in promoting and advancing outdoor play, learning, and teaching. We are currently recruiting people to become members of PLaTO-Net. PLaTO-Net members will work on various projects to share evidence and resources, harmonize terminology, and collaborate on research and advocacy efforts. Mark Tremblay and Dr. Eun-Young Lee (Queen’s University) are heading up this project.
