meaningful, playful & together
Playground platform started spontaneously, during the lockdown when I (Ida) met a stranger online, Helery. While creating, I saw how much leaning on someone else who is in the same boat helps. That baby steps make you start. And how playfulness fuels our curiosity, creativity and work that doesn’t even feel like work. Our plans diverged, but I wanted to see more people do what they love and show that we don't need to take ourselves too seriously, to do a seriously great job.
I do not know your story or current situation, but if you want to work on something that matters to you, need help with procrastination and believe that doing it together is more exciting, I welcome you to play. Are you in?
What other Playgrounders say..
What do you want to be when you grow up? Who knows🤷. So 10+ years after uni, I’ve lived abroad, developed a career and met colleagues who turned into friends. I was grateful but started to feel stuck. I kept wondering what would I truly enjoy creating. I was overanalyzing and judging myself for feeling privileged to do so. As a consequence, I didn't make any real change.
Then a sequence of events got me to quit my job just before Corona struck. Lockdown brought a different level of uncertainty, but also broke ground for Playground! Now my work gives me the privilege to keep playing out of my comfort zone & meet other curious people. And even more importantly, support them in seeing their ideas and playgrounds grow too!

Let go and let Playground take you on a journey of self-discovery! The Playground motivates you, entertains you and keeps you smiling from start to finish! I learned a lot about myself and my goals in life. I was also able to progress towards my goals quickly and efficiently. An experience I’ll always remember that taught me to look inside myself and use my key strengths. Thank you Playground, for improving my life in 5 short weeks! Amazing!
