Childhood, Unplugged

September 20 @ 4:00 pm - 7:00 pm


About the Event:

Outdoor play is associated with positive cognitive, social-emotional, and physical development. In today’s tech-heavy world, children experience more levels of screen time than in generations past and are savvier than ever engaging with technology. Where can we find balance?


Colorado is rich in outdoor resources, but many families and communities struggle with inequitable access to these resources due to geographic, financial, safety, and other constraints, which many public, private, nonprofit and philanthropic organizations and initiatives are seeking to address.


This event will invite attendees to reflect and discuss the impacts of technology and experiential-based learning on child development, explore barriers and opportunities to improve equitable access, and identify low-cost, low-burden strategies to thoughtfully incorporate good outdoor and experiential learning practices in formal and informal learning environments.


Childhood, Unplugged is presented in partnership with Great Outdoors Colorado and the Children’s Museum of Denver at Marsico Campus.


Who should attend?

Health, Education, Early Childhood, and Outdoor Advocates, Service Providers, Policy Makers, Stakeholders, and Nonprofit organizations;


Educators, including curriculum development, principals, and instructional leaders.
