Congratulations to Dr. Louise de Lannoy who presented at the International Play Association World Conference last week in Glasgow, Scotland! Her presentation, entitled: “Scoping review of outdoor play publications in Canada – from the 2015 Position Statement on Active Outdoor Play to now” was very well received, sparking interesting conversation afterwards, and prompting ideas for new collaborations worldwide!

Louise also had the great opportunity to connect with both Canadian and international colleagues, many of whom she had only previously met over email. The next International Play Association World Conference is in New Zealand in 2026 and she can’t wait!
