Hunger, disease, and natural disasters often bring the biggest
headlines. Governments and individuals offer their help as they can. But
all around the world, people—and children in particular—are already
working to make their lives a little bit better, by having fun. With
childhood toys, jokes passed from friend to friend, and soccer games in
the alleyway, humans take on the seriousness of life with play. On this
episode of Latitudes, we look at how we play, where we play, and why
play is so important.
