I find it ridiculous that we as urban practitioners sometimes of us look for final answers & real design proposals from children when we do workshops and engage children in projects. It just annoys me that sometimes we stress children to give us solid solutions. We forget that we should listen to them and translate children’s perspectives into solid solutions.
Let’s not forget that this is our mission and responsibility as practitioners to make child-friendly cities and not children’s.
A pleasure to be invited to Berghs School of Communication Morning Routine to talk about our mission and responsibility as urban practitioners to transform cities into childfriendlycities. I talked about some cases e.g. (links in comments below):
–AFRY ‘s Urban Planning and Design process to co-design schoolyards together with children
–Barcelona City Council Let’s protect schools project
–Helsingborgs stad City’s playgrounds to breakdown segregation
📣🇸🇪 For Swedish speakers
Den 17/11 håller jag en kurs på Berghs om sociala hållbara städer.
