At Cities for Play we aim to inspire communities, councils and city planners 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.

Lessons from Tokyo
Even though Tokyo is a highly urbanised city, strategies has been put into place to ensure that children have vast opportunities to connect with nature and their communities.
