Secondly, the presentation given by Professor Carlos Neto – “The importance of outdoor school spaces in the formation of citizenship and small researchers”, which stated that “a child who does not play regularly and without constraints in space and time She is a healthy child and studies show that there is a very relevant relationship between playing and being happy in childhood and success in adulthood. "Playing and being active in childhood allows us to develop the adaptive, resilient and creative skills needed to be happy, entrepreneurial and successful in adolescence and adulthood."
