In 2019, CoDesign Studio are partnering with not-for-profit organisation Play Australia to kickstart the 1000 Play Streets program

With the goal to provide more regular opportunities for play to get Australian’s moving, the program will fund local government councils to establish regular play streets in their areas.

Beginning with projects in Melbourne, Brisbane, and Perth, the program is delivering seed funding, training, free resources, expertise and consulting services to enable five councils to deliver a Play Street led by local community members.

Through a grants application process, councils can apply for $20,000 co-contribution grants with which they are required to deliver four play streets in two locations by April 2020.

The full partner list includes Play Australia, CoDesign Studio, Sport Australia, and Nature Play solutions.
