The Marcus Veerman talk on play discusses self rejuvenation and achieving happiness through balance. The speaker presently works as the CEO of Playground Ideas, an Australian non-profit organization he also founded after leading the construction of 40 bespoke playgrounds near Thailand and Burma. His interest in international playground building is further expressed in the Marcus Veerman talk. This led to the creation of an open-source platform to share ideas on the topic and a global community that has impacted over 300,000 children in 72 countries at less than $1 per child due to the use of local tools.
He is also a keynote speaker, sharing his entrepreneurial journey with audiences around the world. He has previous experience in counselling, outdoor education and long-term youth mentoring.
