Inaugural International Day of Play on 11 June

Date: 28 March 2024
Topic: Early Years News

The first ever International Day of Play will be celebrated across the world on 11 June, following a resolution at the United Nations passed earlier this week.

The aim of the day will be to champion play, raise awareness of the need to protect children’s right to play, and to emphasise its positive impact on development, physical well-being, and happiness.

The campaign for an International Day of Play was led by the LEGO Group and the LEGO Foundation, and you can find out more on the LEGO website.
