Youth Engagement Plan

To improve the visitation numbers a youth engagement strategy is proposed.

Approximately 75,000 elementary school aged children live in the Edmonton area. Based on these numbers park visitation could increase by 150,000 if one child where to be accompanied by one parent each visit. These numbers could grow larger if children visited multiple times per year.

School programs that the park offers are currently oversubscribed with many thousands of students being turned away each year. This marketing proposal is targeted directly at the parents of elementary school aged children, in order to motivate them to take their children to the park.

Children who play regularly in natural environments show more advanced motor fitness, including coordination, balance and agility, and they are sick less often (Grahn, et al. 1997, Fjortoft & Sageie 2001).

slide13

When Children play in natural environments, their play is more diverse with imaginative and creative play that fosters language and collaborative skills (Moore & Wong 1997, Taylor et al. 2002).

slide15

Children with views of and contact with nature score higher on tests of concentration and self-discipline. The greener, the better the scores (Wells 2000, Taylor et al. 2002).

Early experiences with the natural world have been positively linked with the development of imagination and sense of wonder (Cobb 1977, Louv 1991). Wonder is an important motivator for lifelong learning (Wilson 1997).
