Jardim das Brincadeiras is a group of largely women and children from Brazil who share educational practices and research through natural playing, Brazilian culture, and their self-education. They focus on pedagogy that has emerged from backyards and outdoor spaces across Brazil. The group also works to amplify its action and inspire public schools and public policies. It is using the award to support its Quintais Brincantes (Brazilian spaces to free-play within nature) movement.
