What type of cities do we want our children to grow up in? Car-dominated, noisy, polluted and devoid of nature? Or walkable, welcoming and green?

Tim Gill's new book Urban Playground: How Child-Friendly Planning and Design Can Save Cities reveals how seeing cities through the eyes of children strengthens the case for policies that work for people of all ages - and for the planet. Blending research, practical tools, and in-depth case studies from around the world, Urban Playground shows how to incorporate child friendly insights and ideas into masterplans, public spaces and streetscapes.

Together with guests from featured cities Tel Aviv, Tirana and Recife, we’ll connect to discuss the links between healthier, happier children and more welcoming, vibrant, resilient, and equitable towns and cities.

Translation into Portuguese available.
