meet Project OPENmotion

Introducing Project OPENmotion: ?the partnering of SOLIDCORE's sustainability principles with Michelle Ricker's company New and You adding the visionary focus on change in nutrition, movement and health.  The OPENmotion series of projects merge green design with kids to create play structures where activity, learning and fun happens.  OPENmotion creates movement oriented environments that encourage active use and participation by children, parents and communities. The vision is to achieve a future where people and the earth are healthy. 

Recently, OPENmotion went to Jerusalem, Israel to work with the Hand in Hand bilingual school, where Jewish and Arab children are taught side by side in Hebrew and Arabic, the first and only integrated school of its kind in Israel. 

OPENmotion selects relevant projects each year, looking for the greatest positive impact on kids' health and green design.  Next up are play environments in Portland OR, Austin TX, New York City, and back in Israel.
