Physical Activity + Social Connection = Healthier Generations

Asset 123.png

At Vivo we believe the recipe for raising healthier generations doesn’t have to be complicated. When people are active and socially connected, their lives improve. Open-ended, spontaneous outdoor play is one of the most accessible, adaptable and inclusive ways of bringing those two ingredients to a community. The Vivo Play Project is a cornerstone of VIVO’s mission to help the community transform itself and continue to raise healthier generations.

Improving the behaviors that matter

The Vivo Play Project is a four-year initiative that aims to increase knowledge, understanding, value, and participation in outdoor, unstructured play. It’s unique because it is part public health research initiative & part Social Innovation lab. We call that intersection Social R&D. We are at the forefront of a new generation of government, industry, and not-for-profit labs that are working to develop new ways to tackle the grand challenges facing our communities. Vivo is a leader in the Canadian innovation ecosystem, sharing, and collaborating with others across the country.
