Why play?

We believe play is under-valued and are committed to make it a powerful business tool

PLAY ISN'T JUST FOR CHILDREN

PLAY IS A TRANSFORMATIVE TOOL THAT HAS THE POWER TO:

Change perspectives

Play helps all of us to look at the world from a different perspective and spark real aha moments about the interlinked pillars of planet, people and profit.

Bring people together

Play offers a safe and fun environment to explore, experiment and learn, in a different way. People get together around a common goal.

Push boundaries

In play, we can do things we wouldn’t normally do. Which may mean taking on a different role, pursuing different goals, being bolder and taking more risks.

what does play* mean?

For us play means something that is fun and enjoyable rather than something serious. It means being playful in our approach, using games, humour, improvisation, collaborative challenges and creative techniques to stimulate people’s imaginations and connection to sustainability.

Play is both powerful and empowering; it enables people to see the world from a different perspective and to do things they wouldn’t normally do. Harnessing play for sustainability offers an engaging environment to explore, experiment, learn and co-create in different way. Leading to mindset shifts, changed behaviours and positive action.

CORE SKILLS

PLAY SUPPORTS DEVELOPING IMPORTANT COMPETENCIES TO ADDRESS THE GROWING CHALLENGES OF OUR GLOBAL SOCIETY SUCH AS:

Collaboration

Games create a sense of shared purpose. Using collective intelligence, players are required to cooperate and work together effectively in order to succeed. 

Communication

Interacting with other players, listening carefully, being aware of non-verbal communication, sharing information and negotiating effectively are core play skills.

Creativity

Thinking out of the box, looking at the bigger picture, generating ideas enables players to solve challenges and problems.

Play conveys meaningful content

We believe that play can convey meaningful content and motivate players to drive the change necessary to advance sustainability. We have seen first-hand how experiences during play can shift mindsets and lead to changed behaviours and actions that can be applied to participants personal and professional lives.

Inspire. Engage. Act. 

Play is great for team building

In play teams work cohesively together towards a common goal, learning to better understand each other’s strengths, weaknesses and creating bonds that foster genuine connections, deeper discussions and engagement.

IMMERSIVE EXPERIENCE

In today’s world we are constantly connected and constantly distracted. 

When we play we are immersed in the experience, allowing players to switch off from the real world and become captivated by, focus on and benefit from the learnings gained through play.

Whenever we can we love to play in-person, but whilst COVID stops us being together, it doesn’t stop play and our offer includes both in-person and online workshops.
