About the Speakers

There are many brains behind this movement including Julie, Nalini and Sarah. All of them are leaders for different teams across the City of Calgary, and all of them are passionate about play. They do this work off the sides of their desks, promote the benefits of play non-stop in all aspects of their lives, and are dedicated to breaking down the barriers which parents put around play through education and innovation. If you navigate through their social media posts, you’ll often see images of their own kids exploring, trying new activities, and performing the age-old “look mom/dad, no hands!” pose. You know, just being kids! They practice what they preach and look forward to talking to you about how to meaningfully engage others about what it really means to play, and how you can bring play back to your city.
