Campaign On Our Behalf

  • Contact a school, child care centre, business, association or organisation that you know cares about the role of play. Ask them to endorse the WA Play Strategy campaign.
  • Hold a PLAY MATTERS event such as a play date, play street, play fair, play picnic, play in the park . Last year a very successful Play Date event was held at a school with 350 educators, families and children attending and endorsing the WA Play Strategy campaign.
  • Make an appointment to meet your local member of parliament and your local council member in person: ask them what they are doing about the demise of play-based learning in WA.

Have Your Voice Heard

  • WRITE a community comment on the campaign website so that your voice is heard on matters regarding the state of play in WA. It would be great to include children's opinions on play as well!
  • WRITE a letter to a newspaper editor or contact a community journalist interested in play matters. This will contribute to the ECAWA campaign efforts. Media coverage is important for keeping conversations about play on the agenda.
  • PARTICIPATE in media events relating to play.
