Michelle’s research on Irish playgrounds is hitting the headlines

Michelle Bergin, one of P4Play’s Early Stage Researchers, published a paper recently in the Journal of Occupational Therapy, Schools, and Early Intervention, calling for greater consideration of the transformative potential of play to contribute to more equitable, inclusive and sustainable future.

The article has received traction in Irish news media and Michelle was chosen to present a ‘3 minute elevator pitch” of the article at UCC’s Futures Research Conference on the 21st September 2023.

This is just a snippet of the work being done by our researchers, pushing for changes in national policy and practice on Play. Well done Michelle!
