Child in the City - 18.09.2008

How to adapt our cities to children? (Rotterdam conference)
Are cities fit for children? How to judge the child friendliness of a city? How to develop childoriented urban planning? Find out at the 'Child in the City" conference organised in Rotterdam, from 3 to 5 November 2008.
The Rotterdam conference will pay special attention to two topics. A series of workshops will be dedicated to tools for monitoring child friendliness and another series to child friendly urban space.
The first session will aim to identify, with the assistance of experts from UNICEF, guidelines that help the cities to develop their own tools of self-assessment.
A second series of workshops will focus on a child friendly urban planning, and more particularly on children's mobility. The objective is to conclude with guidelines that help the cities to develop a childoriented urban planning.
The conference is co organised by the Association of Netherlands municipalities (VNG). The Council of European Municipalities and Regions (CEMR) supports the initiative.
