Captain Reko has moved into Lill-Skansen

By on March 7, 2018

On March 4, Captain Reko’s headquarters was opened at Lill-Skansen. Here both big and small children get the chance to explore the connection between animals, nature and the food we eat in a playful environment.

Since Captain Reko was launched in 2014, over 15,000 children in preschool have played the Rekogame and now Kapten Reko moves into Lill-Skansen with its headquarters for playful learning. Here the children get the chance to explore questions like: Where does the milk come from? Can you eat a brown banana?

– With all the appreciation we receive from the children, parents and educators, we think it’s time to make Captain Reko available to the public. Now everyone can take part in her playful learning about sustainability, says John Backlund, project manager at KfS.

At Lill-Skansen, children and adults have been able to get acquainted with animals and nature since 1955. In 2012, the new Lill-Skansen, a facility with both outdoor and indoor areas, classroom, shop and theater, was opened. It was made possible by the project partner KfS, who is now looking forward to the new installation.

– As Captain Reko moves into Lill-Skansen, we get an excellent venue to teach our more than 1 million visitors each year to care for animals and nature. It is a heart question for us, says Jens Djupa, a educator at Lill-Skansen

Behind the Rekogame and Captain Reko installation at Lill-Skansen is the communication agency Concept Store together with illustrator Anna Westin and the scenographer Petter Ljungberg.
