Dr. Roger Hart: Changing Childhood and the Creation of Child Friendly Cities
June 1, 2016 - 9:00am - 1:00pm
Creekside Community Centre
1 Athletes Way

Dr. Hart will be leading this interactive workshop and speaking about some of his latest work related to child friendly communities.

This workshop is for anyone concerned with the current state of children's play and free time outside of school, including planners, designers, policymakers and educators. Participants will learn about and use an internationally recognized tool to evaluate changes in children’s use of free time, the environments made available to them, and the policy and planning responses in B.C. A discussion of why these changes matter will identify strategies and solutions that participants can initiate in their communities.

Early bird tickets are available until May 8th, 2016.

Early Bird tickets: $60 CAD

Regular tickets: $75 CAD
