A better childhood in the city
The special needs of children and young people have to be part of urban development and planning – from the beginning and not as an afterthought. Children and young people must be listened to. They must be allowed to take an active role in the community and local life, and have a say in the decisions that will affect their lives and futures.
Architects and city planners can best make a difference if they work together with local stakeholders and the community. These were some of the points discussed by the speakers at the seminar “A Better Childhood in the City”.
