A Playful World

It not easy to be optimistic about humanity. Whenever you pick up the paper, you are confronted with another terrible conflict because people do not share the same nationality or religion. It seems we are particularly good at finding and focusing upon our differences.

One thing that we have in common is that we were all once kids, and as children each of us delighted in whatever forms of play were common to our environment.

This section of the site, known as "A Playful World," documents the games and play of children from different places around the globe. Our goal is to help preserve these joyful aspects of our cultures and encourage people from different parts of our planet to connect with our common heritage.

If you have something to contribute to this section, please get in touch with us.
