CITIES FOR PLAY
At Cities for Play we aim to inspire urbanists, planners and architects to create playful and child-friendly cities. We explore how the built environment can promote children's health and well-being with a focus on play and active mobility. We believe that children's needs should be at the heart of city design which will in turn create resilient and sustainable communities.
