COVID-19 has made it even more apparent that children need a wider range of enriching learning opportunities, including in the places they go every day. As cities begin to re-emerge from the pandemic, how can public sector and community leaders work together to reimagine play and learning, while grappling with limited budgets and resources?

On Thursday, May 6, the Center for Universal Education and the Bass Center for Transformative Placemaking at Brookings hosted an event highlighting how cities are thinking about new opportunities to embed playful learning in the public realm, particularly in under-resourced neighborhoods. Speakers from the U.S. and abroad highlighted exciting initiatives being implemented in their communities.
