What makes a city child-friendly?
In light of the 30th birthday of the Convention on the Rights of the Child, this project explores what makes a city child-friendly. This question is often answered by adults rather than children themselves. Moreover, designing child-specific places tends to bring children out of view. With an eye to designing cities as places for everyone, including children, this project explores together with children how they experience their city.
The research is conducted by Céline Ramioul, supervised by Ann Heylighen and Piet Tutenel.
