In 2007, Marcus Veerman was living in Thailand when a local NGO asked if he would help them build a playground.
14 years later his social enterprise organisation Playground Ideas has supported more than 5000 projects, across 143 countries, benefitting an estimated 2.5 million children.
Global communities can download 150+ playground designs for free, and then build them locally using found and recycled materials.
There’s strong evidence to support the physical, mental, social and neuroscience benefits of all children accessing playgrounds.
