How would you design child-friendly cities?

By on

The international planning and design company Arup, in partnership with the Bernard van Leer Foundation, is initiating a social media inquiry into what constitutes a child-friendly city. Here is what they have announced.

We want to get your insights and answer your questions on our child-friendly cities work. Join us on Wednesday 5 June for a live Twitter Q&A session with our new partner, the Bernard van Leer Foundation.

Earlier this year, alongside the Bernard van Leer Foundation (BvLF) we held an event celebrating our new partnership. Arup and BvLF partnership will explore new methods and tools that can be used globally to challenge conventional thinking and design cities with children in mind.

We spoke with urban practitioners, academics, development partners, private investors, city authorities and most importantly children to find out ways we can work together to build better cities for the youngest.

On Wednesday 5 June, between 2 pm and 3 pm (UK time), the floor is open to you and your questions around what it takes to design inclusive and better cities for young children. Some of our experts will be on hand to respond to your thoughts and queries.

Just tag us on Twitter @ArupGroup with your question and don’t forget to hashtag: #urbanchildhoods #citiesforkids #urban95. For more information about our event, take a look at this short video to recap what urban practitioners and other guests had to say about this topic during the Growing up in the city event.
