The Value of Play Walk and Talk

Get on those walking boots and join researchers on a guided walk around Exeter.

Join the INNOPLAY  team at University of Exeter for a gentle walk and conversation to discover the value of play in innovation and creativity.

Many of us might think play is left behind in childhood, but increasingly research shows that it is valuable throughout life and sometimes in unexpected ways. Play can be used for creativity, as well as compassion and wellbeing. Take a walk with the INNOPLAY team and find out more about how play is being used to enable innovation and unlocking creativity, wellbeing, belonging and joy. Prepare for something playful along the way.


INNOPLAY is a University of Exeter initiative run by Maarten Koeners (Medical School) and Adam Lusby (Business School), aiming to find solutions to enable innovation through play. We research, develop and teach how to combine play with design mindset to unlock
