The very first UN International Day of Play is here!

Play Scotland is still striving to get Play on the agenda, and with the very first International Day of Play, we can spread this message far and wide.

Taking part can be as simple as making extra time to play on the 11th of June. You can take part in person, online and add your voice to the play movement.

Together we can make play a priority every day.
