Catharine has visited Prague to give a Proměny Foundation lecture on children, greenspace, play and the urban environment.
The Proměny Foundation is a Czech non-profit organisation founded in 2006 by Karel Komárek. Its ‘Playful Garden’ grant scheme holds the International Play Association’s Right to Play Award 2014 for helping to transform Czech school gardens into inspiring environments.
The Foundation facilitates co-design between children, teachers and parents; Catharine’s talk, Child’s play and the outdoors: the importance of access to green and natural environments, is part of a series of events taking place in school gardens and playgrounds, libraries and even a railway station.
You can watch an interview with Catharine on the Proměny Foundation YouTube channel (in English, with Czech subtitles). Her visit has also been covered by The Week, Respekt and Týden.
