Urban95: Mobility for Young Children
If you could see the city from an elevation of 95 centimeters, the average height of a healthy 3 year old, how would you plan transportation, neighborhoods and a mix of activities differently? By incorporating a focus on early childhood development (ages 0-5) into mobility, it is clear that urban environments pose a multitude of challenges such as unsafe streets, poor air quality and inaccessible public transport. Based on the Bernard van Leer Foundation’s Urban95 Starter Kit, participants will explore where to start planning for young children and their caregivers to create healthy, prosperous and vibrant cities, and provide the best start in life for their youngest residents. Please review the Urban95 Starter Kit (available on the MOBILIZE app) before the session.
