Workshop: Outdoor Play, Risky Play & Healthy Child Development

June 13, 2016

Toronto, ON

9:00 am - 1:00 pm
Toronto Sheridan Centre, Chestnut West Room

This CPHA pre-conference session is designed for multi-sector stakeholders and community leaders to increase knowledge and understanding of the evidence-based connections between outdoor play, risky play and healthy child development.

Risky play includes concepts of outdoor, unstructured, child-directed play that allows children to explore their environment, develop physical competencies and understand risk tolerance that supports their long term healthy development. This workshop will share the evidence that supports a direct correlation between outdoor play, risky play and healthy child development. Through case studies and community stories, it will examine how the Position Statement on Active Outdoor Play is being used across Canada to improve access to outdoor play and risky play.

This workshop will:

  1. examine local level and systemic barriers that limit access to outdoor play, including risky play within the context of Public Health.  

  2. share the research that supports the connection between risky play and children’s social, mental and physical health and well-being.

  3. provide a knowledge sharing opportunity to strengthen dialogue on risky play and healthy child development through an evidence-based, population health framework

  4. reframe concepts of risk and provide simple definitions of what is and is not risky play.

  5. comprehensively address issues of liability, duty of care and risk management within a Public Health and community context.
  6. share case studies and tools to strengthen understanding of the benefits of risky play
