Play City

Play City. The Children’s Scrappy News Service.

 

Making Mumbai a giant sustainable place to play for one million children to action their 21st Century Skills to take on and reverse Climate Change in the City.

 

Goal 4 – Quality Education

Goal 5 – Gender Equality

Goal 15 – Life on Land

 

Geographic coverage: Mumbai, Maharashtra

 

The Children’s Scrappy News Service is a mass-media, on air, online and on the ground large-scale at school educational program, made in Mumbai, for a world of children. 

 

Scrappy: to make something out of nothing to change everything.

 

Play City, Season II of The Children’s Scrappy News Service, is 26 episodes that take place in the city of Mumbai. Scrappy is a news-talk-game-show program that runs on national television, online through an APP/mobile/digital channel and importantly, on the ground in 1,200 BMC schools in four languages.

 

  • 26 episodes, each 22 minutes, air on national television.
  • 26 skills, 21st Century Skills education for children in Grade 6-8 in 1,200 BMC schools are actioned at-school through scrapbooks of challenges made of repurposed materials. Children define their own problem-solving, design-thinking learning journey - they ask questions and find solutions.
  • 100 places to play in BMC schools or next to, are sustainably remade to be multi-format sports pitches where girls and boys play team sports together. Thousands of children who don’t have access to sports yet will be able to play football, cricket, volleyball in sustainably designed spaces, surrounded by vertical green gardens that are lush from rainwater harvesting, floodlights and schools powered by solar, with bamboo changing rooms and toilets for girls, bees, butterflies and children together play to learn and action a city-wide solution for the greatest challenge of our time.

 

Climate Change.

 

Play City - are you ready to play?

 

Scrappy’s theory of change is that if there’s one city in India that can do this, it’s Mumbai.

 

By the sea, with a long coast line, mass media and yearly floods, Mumbai is on the frontlines of Climate Change and because of that, with Going to School’s MOU to deliver 21st Century Design-Thinking skills at school and funding in place to make the TV series, this is the city that can create spaces for children to design, innovate, learn and action their solutions for a sustainable city at school and where they live. 

 

We, together with one million children and the city, want to make Mumbai a giant sustainable place to play for one million children to take on and reverse Climate Change, ward by ward, school by school, community by community and tell the story, share it widely, on national television.

 

Play City TV

 

The 26 part TV series is supported by the IKEA Foundation and is in the research and writing phase with the goal of going in air on Children’s Day, November 14th 2021. 

 

Play City Mobile/Digital: scrAPP

 

Scrappy’s digital channel for children will stream the TV series and child-created content they’ve created to find solutions for Climate Change there they live. 26 weeks of outside challenges that are completed at school in teams using a scrapbook as a guide have 26 challenges on the APP and Digital channel.

 

Individual children can sign up and build teams to play across the city.

BMC schools are GPS tagged and participate from offline to online completed challenges. Children can nominate their school to be a part of it and/or schools can sign up to play the game and pitch their own solutions actioning them where they are.

 

The Play City schools, skills challenge is open to all schools and children in the city with Going to School directly implementing and engaging children in 1,200 schools that are still largely offline.

 

When the challenge launches, the channel updates daily with leaderboards for schools and wards for how they’re doing. 

 

Play City Schools: Scrapbook

 

Designed scrapbooks made of recycled, up-cycled materials, brightly colored paper, leaves, colored pencils are all-in-one dynamic toolkits for kids to follow a design-thinking process to find solutions to Climate Change where they live, map and design sustainable places to play and action their 21st Century Skills while they play and learn.

 

Play City’s Places to Play

 

With access to 100 sports pitches in BMC schools or next door, Going to School is working with sustainability architects to transform the city’s sports pitches into sustainable places for children to play team sports - sustainably. 

 

Powered by clean energy (solar), installing rainwater harvesting, vertical gardens, vertical farms, composting toilets, bamboo changing rooms and toilets for girls, we want to create green places for children to play across the city.

 

We’re excited. 

 

There are so many hidden places that can be transformed sustainably.
