Transform Playgrounds for Climate Resiliency

Playgrounds are more than just an outdoor space for kids to run around - or at least they should be.  Well-designed outdoor play areas can encourage students to explore their physical boundaries, engage with the natural world, foster cooperative and imaginative play. Such spaces can do all of this while also increasing climate change resiliency by managing stormwater and mitigating the heat-island effect of urban environments.

Evergreen partners with school boards across Canada on transforming playgrounds and creating climate ready schools.

Parents can play a role by talking with their school boards and encouraging them to create partnerships - and as always, let us know if you'd like some support with this.
