At our annual conference in December, we held a Structured Research Dialogue on outdoor play and participation. During this dialogue the idea arose of creating a working group on the topic. This group is now in the process of being set up. The inaugural meeting of the group takes place Tuesday 14th March 2017 12noon-2pm in Children's Research Network's offices in 9 Harcourt Street, Dublin 2. The meeting is open to anyone with an interest in outdoor play and participation.
