Learn how to make school playgrounds open to the public

On June 9th, from 1-4 p.m., The National Policy & Legal Analysis Network to Prevent Childhood Obesity (NPLAN) is hosting a workshop before the Childhood Obesity Conference in Los Angeles on joint use agreements, which are partnerships between schools and local government to open school property to the community after school hours.

This workshop will provide information about the challenges to implementing joint use agreements, practical tips for overcoming barriers, and maintaining collaborative partnerships. Check out NPLAN’s website for free model joint use agreements, technical assistance tools and other resources.
