Variety Alberta has grown to become a Centre of Excellence in Inclusive Playground Design
- Advocacy/Policy and Legislation: We are working with the various levels of government to influence policy and legislation seeking to incorporate inclusion and barrier free design into law;
- Education and Outreach: We continue to learn about best and promising practices in inclusive and barrier free playground design and partner with international organizations committed to inclusive design in playground builds; and
- Building Inclusive Communities Through Play: With direct and indirect support, we support playground builds and community play spaces and ensure they are designed on universal design principles so no one is excluded from using them.
Through funding, support and community partnerships, our goal is to ensure that all children with specialized needs can be active participants within their communities. Please help by donating below or contact us to find out how you can support Variety Alberta
