Children will lack the work skills they need in the future because they are not spending enough time playing, a Lego executive has warned.
 
乐高的一名高管日前警告说:“如果孩子没有充足的时间玩耍,他们将缺乏未来所需的工作技能。”
 
John Goodwin, head of Lego's charitable arm the Lego Foundation, says less time in the classroom and more time playing is the solution.
 
The foundation has a 25% stake in the Danish toy maker1, giving it a vested interest in encouraging play.
 
Mr Goodwin is attending the World Economic Forum2 in Davos, the annual gathering3 of top business and political leaders, in a bid to persuade them of the importance of play.
 
He took over running the foundation last year after a spell as Lego's chief financial officer.
 
He hopes the Davos elite4 will put pressure on governments to make education more play-based.
 
If not, he believes companies will find it increasingly difficult to hire the type of staff they need: "Critical thinking and problem solving starts in early childhood development. It's where the foundations are laid."
 
Mr Goodwin said technological5 advances, particularly the growth of the internet, meant that knowledge itself had become obsolete6.
 
Instead he said it was now more important to teach children how to learn, and work things out for themselves, with play being one way to achieve this goal.
 
Yet in a warning that will be familiar to many parents, the Lego Foundation chief says the "increasingly overscheduled world" of children has resulted in less time for them to do so.
 
This could have "serious long term consequences" for companies, he said.
