RESEARCH & ADVOCACY
Research is the means by which we can all advocate for outdoor play4all children regardless of a child's social economic background, gender or physical abilities.
My current PHD research aims to explore children’s access and engagement with outdoor play in Kitengela, a host community in Kenya through the process of co-design. In conditions of refugee displacement, children often lack access to safe play areas. However outdoor play is crucial for childhood development, and the mitigation of some of the negative effects of displacement. This collaborative research provides a unique opportunity to produce an innovative, transferable co-design methodology in collaboration with local stakeholders, that generates contextual outdoor play design solutions developed with child users.

The co-design process does not necessarily produce an egalitarian construct and does not guarantee that equal partnerships will be between the service users and the staff supporting them (Farr, 2018)
