Why are people starting these ideas?

“Through the Build a World of Play campaign, we want to make a real difference to the lives of children across the world. We are excited to continue our partnership with ChangeX, which will support more communities to provide opportunities for children to learn through play. Play is an essential part of a child’s learning and development. Our research has shown that learning through play develops holistic skills in children that are critical for tackling life’s challenges."
