Play Gloucestershire, United Kingdom

Play Gloucestershire is a registered charity that delivers active and creative outdoor play in urban and rural communities across the county, whatever the weather, all year round. Activities are both school and community based, and our Play Rangers provide adventure, friendship and fun for hundreds of school aged children each year. We particularly support children from disadvantaged and rurally isolated communities and those living in challenging circumstances.

Our Play Rangers are trained playworkers who take their skills and equipment to where children play, both in schools and in community spaces. They deliver active and creative play outdoors all year round, whatever the weather. Their job is to make play happen, and they co-create play alongside children and other family members.

Rogers Személyközpontú Oktatásért Alapítvány, Hungary

Rogers Foundation for Person-Centred Education

Based on Carl R. Rogers’ thoughts we believe that a person can understand and fulfill him or herself through living, personal experiences and in accepting relationships. Our mission is to ensure this accepting relationship to people, and to have people understand and become conscious about its importance. Also we would like to understand and prevent all barriers against building up these relationships.
As a permanent educational institution we maintain a “non-school”, called Rogers Academy, where young people looking for an alternative for traditional education can find their place as private learners.
In the last ten years we have implemented more than 50 educational projects in different areas but with common approach: drama pedagogy, arts therapy, free play, game-based learning, emotional intelligence, systems thinking, leisure time pedagogy, talent development, e-learning, sustainability education, human rights and equal opportunities and person-centred organizational development.
