Time: 1.00-2.00pm (AEST)

Digital playgrounds can be an inexpensive solution to get families back to their local parks and get them motivated and educated to adopt a behaviour change such as taking their litter with them or understanding why the water quality of your local pond or river is important.

In this webinar, we will step you through a variety of inexpensive options and thought processes to design interactive digital experiences, apps or games for your community while taking a bird's eye view of how that fits in with your community engagement, marketing and overall education resources.
