Gwen_Gordon_100x100Most of us have been raised to think of play as a frivolous distraction from the serious business of living. But what if we got it backwards? What if play is the essential ingredient for our individual and collective well-being?

Join Gwen as she turns the work ethic on its head and connects some surprising dots to show how a play movement is emerging in every area of life, and why our future as a species depends on it. 

Key takeaways

  • The evolutionary context for the play movement

  • Why play? The costs when we don't, the benefits when we do

  • A bird's eye view of the play movement... everywhere!

  • How the future of work is play

  • Tips for turning proving grounds and battlefields into playgrounds
