This week, is focusing on questions about why people play and how play relates to learning.
More and more research suggests that healthy playtime leads to healthy adulthood.
Childhood play is essential for brain development. As we've reported this week, time on the playground may be more important than time in the classroom.

Help the American Women's Club of Oslo celebrate its 80th anniversary with a of bit creative play! We will be hosting the FAWCO Region 2 Conference this year, from October 10, 2014 through October 12, 2014. Our theme for this year’s regional conference is “Come Out and Play” and although the AWC may be a grande dame, her members enjoy a bit of fun in their social and philanthropic endeavors. To quote George Bernard Shaw, "We do not stop playing because we grow old; we grow old because we stop playing." So come and join us in learning how play can be beneficial for our creativity, our ability to learn, and our mental and physical well-being.
The Regional Meeting will start with a welcome reception and potluck dinner on Friday evening, an all-day conference and a catered dinner (additional cost of NOK 300) on Saturday, and a mini “Amazing Race” within Oslo on Sunday morning. Also on Sunday, there will be two benefit concerts by pianist and composer Robin Meloy Goldsby, an AIWC Cologne member, with the proceeds going to the FAWCO Target Program, Human Rights for Women.
