What Attracts You the Most in the Environment?

Friday, September 9th, 2011

My talk in two weeks at the Play for Life Symposium will be about how to engage people of all ages and abilities.

In the past four years of research, evaluating children’s environments from aquariums to zoos, I discuss eight things that are practically guaranteed to attract children.

I’d be interested in hearing from those of you who read my blog, however. I presume you are mostly adults and I haven’t observed what adults like in the environment.

So, the QUESTION: What single thing attracts you the most in the environment?

It doesn’t have to be just outdoor places. Ok, if you want to list more than one thing (many of us can’t make up our minds), go ahead. It would be great, however, if you could list them from Thing That Attracts Me Most to Thing That Attracts Me Least.

Also, what age group are you in?
1) 0 – 7
2) 8 – 12
3) 12 – 18
4) 18 – 36
5) 37 – 45
6) 46 – 55
7) 56 – 75
8) 76 and older!

Thanks!
