Volume 9: Serious PlayAuthors in this issue discuss play in the context of environmental work. Some writers celebrate the richness of our creative powers; others describe how landscapes of play form a basis for connecting with the natural world. A common idea emerges throughout the writings: play brings people together and sets the imagination in motion–both integral to the ecological work we face now and in the future.
