In this workshop, we will discuss the definition, history, benefits and categories of risky play, the RISK Triangle (a concept developed by Jarrett Krentzel), how to utilize different types of outdoor spaces for risky play (which includes site, risk and hazard assessments), a requirement for safe and comfortable risky play and how to work within the requirements and regulations of licensing in regards to risky play. The goal of this workshop is to bring awareness about the joyful outcomes of risky play, which will in turn change our association and relationship to this type of necessary play!
