2020 National Association Report
The International Play Equipment Manufacturers Association (IPEMA) is a non-profit, membership, trade association that represents and promotes an open market for manufacturers of playground equipment and surfacing. Its Voice of Play initiative promotes growth in the quality and quantity of children's free play and the use of playgrounds. Though 2020 was a complicated year for everyone, a lot of great awareness and education on the importance of play took place!
Due to the isolation of the pandemic and growing social injustices taking place in the U.S., Voice of Play conducted its third annual survey around the importance of play and how it can foster inclusivity and equity on the playground. One thousand parents were surveyed.
