Play: Rights & Possibilities

The 22nd International Play Association Triennial World Conference is going to Glasgow.

Scotland is recognised as one of the world’s leading nations for its support and practical action for children’s play. The right to play is backed by policy and practice across all sectors. The conference will examine how UN General Comment No 17 on article 31 of the Convention on the Rights of the Child has impacted policy and practice in Scotland, and worldwide, to improve children’s right to play and to create possibilities for the future. As Scotland is setting out to implement and integrate children’s rights into all parts of Scottish life by making the Convention on the Rights of the Child part of the law, there is an opportunity to explore what this means for the right to play. The conference will also explore how play reduces pressure and increases resilience in children’s lives, supporting their positive mental health and well-being.

Children’s experience is woven through the conference, with presentations of visual media, papers, projects and research. Delegates can find out about children’s experiences in Scotland first-hand through the programme of facilitated visits.
