Nearly 100 degrees couldn't keep the NY skate community away from Go Skateboarding Day's main attraction on June 21.

That hundred became a few thousand (we lost count after 2,233) and game was officially on. In some unplanned yet seemingly choreographed display of grinding, sliding, and ollies oh my!, skateboarders from all over the region (and even some pros), spent the next 4 hours test-riding the new park. It was, to say the least, awesome.

An impressively interdisciplinary group of professionals will be meeting this week to discuss issues related to design of optimal buildings for children. June 27-29 in Berkeley, California, architects, landscape designers, early childhood educators, real estate developers, local and national governments, and the greater public are convening to share their collective wisdom.

This year's International Working Forum will challenge views on model building design for children, present state of the art building reviews from around the world, provide opportunities for deep discussion of approaches to incorporate the latest design features into children’s buildings and spaces, and establish an international network under the Global Collaborative OnDesign for Children.
