Cities alive: designing for urban childhoods

December 2017: Arup

The amount of time children spend playing outdoors, their ability to get around independently, and their level of contact with nature are strong indicators of how a city is performing, not just for children but for all generations of city dwellers. If cities fail to address the needs of children, they risk economic and cultural impacts as families move away. Through 40 global case studies, 14 recommended interventions and 15 actions for city leaders, developers and investors and built environment professionals, this report shows how we can create healthier and more inclusive, resilient and competitive cities for us to live, work and grow up in.
