For over 15 years I have been involved in the property sector as public relations advisor. Connecting the role of a property advisor and a mother I started investigating children’s experience of a city. I believe children are important participants of urban space and they should be included in deciding about its shape. Especially that truly smart solutions are simple, and very often, children spot them first. That is why I talk and listen to children speaking on their experience of urban space. I share my findings during conferences, writing articles and educating. Actively involved in KIDS Working Group.
Child-friendly cities | Toolbox
Consulting children, child’s experience of urban space – obstacles and pleasures, how to hack urban environment so it becomes more playful.
The project I am most proud of is always the one ahead of me. Everything I do takes me further on my path and brings new ideas. I think of my work with children as an on-going project. With the development of the project and my personal interests I pay attention to different aspects of child’s perception of the urban space. I started from finding out why children do not feel secure enough to travel to school on their own, later my main emphasis shifted to UX and playfulness. Now, things that occupy me most are stories and magic in urban space – children’s map as a map of stories not net of streets, stories told to familiarise unfamiliar and to befriend the scary or magic spells used to influence infrastructure, when there is no option of participation.
