Remember the special playground friendships you made over endless trips on the slippery slide and daredevil stunts on the climbing frame? They were friendships forged with imagination, focus and achievement. We may have grown up a little, but at Urban Play our friendships are still fuelled with that same passion. We carefully partner with other companies who share our values and desires, and together work as a team to make the world a better place through play.
The KOMPAN Play Institute
The KOMPAN Play Institute is an international network of play and child specialists who monitor how different trends in society influence children’s development and play patterns. The Institute also initiates and takes part in different research projects around the world, aiming to benefit children, teenagers and the adults who work with them by sharing knowledge.
The KOMPAN Play Institute compiles research in a broad range of academic fields, including play and health, play and ages, play rights, inclusion and accessibility.
Always eager to share knowledge, the KOMPAN Play Institute runs campaigns designed to increase general awareness, as well as documenting children’s need for active outdoor leisure and play facilities. Their latest campaign, Nowhere to Go, highlights the demand for active outdoor places for young people today.
Australian Institute of Landscape Architects (AILA)
It’s great working with people who love design as much as we do. That’s why we value our relationship with the Australian Institute of Landscape Architects.
We have been proudly sponsoring AILA QLD for over three years and are committed to working together to provide informative events about designing and integrating play areas into surrounding environments, for the mutual benefit of AILA members and the communities they are designing for.
