Seoul will be hosting 2019 Play Seoul Week, a campaign for ameliorating playing environments for children, enhancing their rights to play, and improving civic awareness about playing. The play week will be held in parks and playgrounds for children throughout Seoul.
This event was planned and is being conducted by the Seoul Play Civil Network, an organization formed based on the “2019 Seoul Playground Vitalization” project (subtitle: “Seoul Sings for Playgrounds”), a civic governance project of the city.
2019 Play Seoul Week will be operated in the form of a pop-up playground in 12 parks and children’s playgrounds in nine areas of Seoul from November 1 to 10. The programs will include playing activities for children, safety when using children’s playgrounds, and the campaign for the right to play.
Citizens may feel free to participate in the playing activities with children by visiting the closest participating park or playground.
