Play for all.
HAGS CREATES PLAY & MEETING PLACES FOR PARTICIPATION, ACCESSIBILITY & JOY
Lek för alla
Our goal is to inspire play for everyone. We want playgrounds to be a joy for as many as possible, to inspire children of all ages, regardless of ability, to interact with each other. Play and joy free body and soul. You get motor training: coordination, balance and strength – qualities that you benefit from throughout your life. Play is also of great importance for children's social interaction.
By practicing interaction, the social skills are developed; communicate, cooperate, resolve conflicts. When children dare to try new things, courage and self-esteem develop, these abilities are especially important for children with disabilities. Play value describes how the environment, the product or a play position gives the child the experience of play. High play value shows that the child can play in many different ways and explore their own ideas and games. We divide play value into three categories: physical, sensory and social.
FN:s Barnkonvention blev lag 1 januari 2020. Den säger att alla barn har rätt till lek i en stimulerande, trygg och tillgänglig miljö.

When constructing a new playground in a park, it is good to ask yourself the question of whether the location is suitable. It should be easy to find and get to, but should also be at a safe distance from roads or other busy areas. An accessible playground needs to be reachable.
