'Cities for and with Children and Youth – Ideas to Inspire Action'

Many people and organisations have asked us: what can we, ourselves, do to make cities better for children and young people? This publication responds to this question by offering some ideas for local and low‑cost action. It starts from the premise that actions can be done by ordinary citizens and others to improve cities and neighbourhoods for children and young people. The actions themselves have direct benefits, but they can also be a first step to inspire or trigger wider more scalable change reaching more children, schools, streets, neighbourhoods and cities.
