Recently I led a stimulating and motivating project with the Bernard van Leer Foundation - the Urban95 Journeys. It is designed to help professionals working in city planning, design and management to understand the experience of babies, toddlers and their caregivers during their everyday journeys. Each journey aims to spark ideas on how to improve their experiences to create healthy, prosperous and vibrant cities in which the youngest residents thrive. It provides interactive exercises, actionable ideas and guidance to help understand the influence of urban environments on caregiver well-being and caregiving behaviours, which in turn directly impacts the healthy development of babies and toddlers.
