Episode 3: Designing child-friendly cities
When? Tuesday, May 4th, 12-12.50 CET.
The third episode of this series is dedicated to creating and designing child-friendly environments. What exactly is a child-friendly city and how do we plan for it? How current urbanisation trends are impacting children, and what should we do about it? What are the needs of children for different places in the city? How do we make sure the urban environment allows them to play, grow, learn, and move freely?
To explore these issues with us, we welcome Tim Gill, author of “Urban Playground – How Child-Friendly Planning and Design Can Save Cities“. Tim will share practical lessons and insights from his book, and discuss why healthier and happier children make better cities for everyone.
Our second speaker is Anne Pia Møllenhus, leading landscape architect at Link Arkitektur, who will share her experiences of how to design with and for children in the project Torslanda school in Gothenburg. Here, the schoolyard is regarded as an essential arena designed to facilitate the children’s social experiences and positively impact their well-being and development.
