Play For Ideas

When did we stop playing and why?

Many of us were often told that playing is a distraction and it doesn't help us grow.
But what if it was the opposite?

What if learning didn't look the same for all?

What if work stopped being the place of our nightmares? 
What if we were allowed to explore possibilities and learn from our mistakes instead of being punished for them? 


This could all be possible if we started playing a little more.

Play is one of the hardest yet most rewarding activities in life.
It requires strategy, collaboration, motivation - all great learning elements!

That's why we want you to play with us and build something incredible in the world!

"Play is our natural way of adapting and developing new skills. It is what prepares us for emergence, and keeps us open to serendipity, to new opportunities.
It prepares us for ambiguity."

Brown in Kristiansen and Rasmussen, 2014

"Games make us happy because they are hard work that we choose for ourselves, and it turns out that almost nothing makes us happier than good,
hard work."

McConigal, 2011

"Play [...] helps us adapt and become resilient, and keeps us open to new opportunities - exactly the same qualities one would want to bring to the boardroom."

Kristiansen and Rasmussen, 2014
