The World's Largest Sandbox Event Recap

Bringing everyone together to play in The Sandbox of Child and Youth health

On June 4th, 2014, The Sandbox Project held its third annual World's Largest Sandbox in Ottawa. This event is designed to raise awareness of the importance of child and youth health issues. The world's largest sandbox brings everyone together, in the sandbox for a common cause: making Canada the healthiest place in the world for children and youth to grow up.

As an organization, The Sandbox Project acts as a facilitator and catalyst as we work to bring organizations, institutions, corporations, and individuals together to break down silos and increase the capacity of underutilized initiatives. The purpose of The World's Largest Sandbox Event in Ottawa is to bring people together in the most literal sense. And have a little fun doing it!
