KIDS Working Group
The KIDS Working Group focuses on children’s well being, and their interaction with space and the city. Their aim is to use placemaking to create child-friendly cities.
We aim to give a voice to children in the city. Therefore, our current project is a research to collect data of what children think about the city and the spaces surrounding them. We conduct interviews with children to hear, understand and disseminate their point of view.
By collecting data from different cities in Europe, the group aspires to compare the results and create a map of the level of child-friendliness of the cities throughout the continent according to children’s point of view.
