GO OUT AND PLAY CONFERENCE

In 2014, EBJ and the Board sponsored the Go Out and Play! Conference. Inspired by the award-winning documentary film School’s Out: Lessons from a Forest Kindergarten, the conference drew over 100 educators, students, and parents to explore the importance outdoor play for young children’s development. The half-day conference featured a keynote address, panel discussion, and interactive breakout sessions with leading educators, filmmakers, psychologists, pediatricians, environmental designers, and community organizers.
