Speaking Engagements

Our CEO, Griffin Longley, is available for speaking engagements, including key note speaker, conference presenter and for nature-play related events.

Griffin Longley is the CEO of Nature Play WA, an award-winning journalist, a former weekly columnist with The West Australian Newspaper, the founder of a program for at risk kids called Night Hoops, and was an inaugural Board Member of the WA Parks Foundation.

Griffin was a finalist in the 2017 Western Australia Australian of the Year Awards in the Local Hero category and was awarded a Churchill Fellowship in 2018.

Nature Play is a not-for-profit organisation with a growing international reputation for innovative programs that increase awareness of the benefits of unstructured play outdoors and has spread to South Australia, Queensland and the ACT.

Griffin is available for a select number of speaking engagements, and is in high demand for his engaging expert thoughts on the importance of child-led play in the outdoors (nature play), and the way it supports every aspect of children’s development including their physical and mental health, social and emotional development, the building of resilience and creativity, and their connection to nature.
