From 23rd to 25th September, we discussed Play Areas and good practice concerning Impact Attenuating Surfacing (IAS) from a multidisciplinary perspective.
More than 80 participants attended, both in person and online, mostly from Portugal, but also from Australia, Canada, France, Spain, UK and Serbia. We had live streaming on ZOOM (in Portuguese) and Youtube (in English).
