EON is a visionary organization with pragmatic objectives – to grow the capacity and speed of human beings to learn together, for the highest good of all – and to benefit our planet for generations to come.

Founded in 1998, EON is a registered charity in New Zealand with increasing numbers of supporters from around the world who share a common philosophy, commitment and intent.

In an increasingly complex world, we strive for elegant and creative solutions to connect people and communities. We believe good communication and a culture of play enhance collaboration and the creation of workable solutions to pressing issues facing us and our planet. We believe that the future is played and we have choices.


EON is on a quest to better understand how play can be applied to serious topics such as police reform, climate change, healthcare, and the economy.

We seek contributions from researchers, practitioners, anyone who has insight into the application of play principles to creating good futures. We will curate the content into a digital digest and physical book, possibly a series.

If you would like to contribute an article, playful activity, a two minute video on the topic of play. In what ways can the principles of play be harnessed to create powerful and inspiring futures?
