This project is based on developing children and youngsters understanding of energy production. We wish to create a playground that challenges children’s way to play and makes it exciting and rewarding to play. While playing we want to give the children an idea of what it takes to produce energy. Through this we hope to make them appreciate energy and affect them in their daily use of it. Ideas on how a sustainable playground can be implemented will be presented at the GRØN DYST Study Conference.
