meaningful, playful & together


Why Playground?

Playground was born spontaneously during lockdown between two strangers who met online – Ida & Helery. In the meantime, their plans changed and Ida decided to continue working with the unique recipe that turned her life around. She 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 good job.


From personal experience & the Playground Pilot I saw that leaning on someone in the same boat works. Baby steps make you start now. And that playfulness fuels curiosity, creativity and work that doesn’t feel like work.

I do not know your story and current situation, but if you want to work on something that matters to you and believe that doing it together is more exciting, I welcome you to play. Are you in?


What other Playgrounders say.. 

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!

..Ida's story 

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 also overanalyzing and judging myself for feeling privileged to do so. As a consequence, I was only more tired & didn't make a real change.

..Then a sequence of events pushed me out of my comfort zone and into quitting my job in 2020. Then Corona struck and brought in a different level of uncertainty and broke ground for the Playground.
