Kompan + Equitable Play
Play for All
Universal designs for inclusive playgrounds
All children have their own personalities, strengths, and individuality. Universally, though, they all share an urge to play! According to the KOMPAN Play Institute's research, children, including children with disabilities, share common wishes for playgrounds to be thrilling with varied play activities and a place to be with friends.
Since the establishment of the KOMPAN Play Institute in the 1980s, inclusive play and universal design have been part of KOMPAN's DNA. Universal design welcomes all users, regardless of their abilities. It means an inclusive approach: All people cannot necessarily play on everything, but all should be able to play on something. We call it "Play for All". Equality in playground access and use is a fundamental responsibility of our communities. The KOMPAN Play Institute is there to make sure that the proper, documented solutions are provided.
The mission of inclusive play is to unite everyone, regardless of their abilities, through play!
