Child-Friendly in the City

BY IAN SMITH
@ VOL 25 ON JUN 09, 2016

"Children are part of our cities. If our cities aren't designed for children, then they're not meant for citizens. If they're not meant for citizens, they're not cities."

In "Child-Friendly in the City" from PechaKucha Night Edmonton Vol.25Ian Smith speaks to a demographic whose voices often go unheard in urban decision-making: children. In Ian's presentation, he challenges us to view our spaces through the eyes of the younger generation while acknowledging that we all have a part to play in building child-friendly cities.
