Natural Learning Initiative

Natural Learning Initiative (NLI)

The Natural Learning Initiative (NLI) is a research and design assistance program of the College of Design of North Carolina State University. NLI creates environments for healthy human development and a healthy biosphere for generations to come. The purpose of the Natural Learning Initiative is to promote the natural environment in the daily experience of all children and families, through environmental design, action research, education, and dissemination of information.

GameTime and our parent company, PlayCore, have partnered with the Natural Learning Initiative to develop two comprehensive design programs, NatureGrounds and Pathways for Play, to promote and encourage meaningful play experiences for children in nature.
