How to use the videos:

The opportunities for using the videos are endless. A few examples include:

  • In a staff meeting to generate discussion within your organization
  • As part of a community engagement meeting
  • With parent councils or community associations
  • To make connections and/or build relationships with others that work in recreation, sport,
  • health, education or active living
  • In a staff training/on boarding process
  • Insert videos as a link into newsletters
  • Conversation starters when starting or strengthening a PLAY group or wellness coalition
  • In workshops or community education settings

*If using the videos in a group setting, consider providing an outline for discussion, using small
breakout groups for discussion and then share back with the group, and/or allocating someone to take notes to be compiled after the meeting or session.
