Description

2018 Central Scotland Green Network Forum

Children, young people + green space = a healthy equation

14 June 2018 – Hamish Wood Building, Glasgow Caledonian University


The UNICEF Child Friendly Cities and Communities is a worldwide programme to help nations and administrations put the needs and rights of children and young people at the heart of decision-making. The initiative is about valuing all children, protecting the most vulnerable and allowing children to flourish so they can engage actively in their communities.

Child friendly cities and communities are those places where children can:

  • Influence decisions about their city or community
  • Express their opinions on their city or community
  • Participate in family, cultural, city or community and social life
  • Experience quality, inclusive and participatory services
  • Be safe and protected from exploitation, violence and abuse
  • Meet friends and have places and spaces to play and enjoy themselves
  • Have green spaces for plants and animals
  • Live in a clean, unpolluted environment
  • Be an equal citizen, with access to services regardless of their ethnic origin, religion, family income, gender, sexuality or ability

As we celebrate the 2018 Year of Young People, it is timely for the Central Scotland Green Network Forum to consider the recurrent themes that have emerged internally through the programme and to consider what more we can do to encourage:

  • Child-friendly urban design
  • Access to the natural environment
  • Independent mobility
  • Children’s health and well-being
  • Access to good quality open spaces and recreation
  • Children’s participation
  • Positive educational outcomes

We look forward to seeing you on 14 June to look at examples of good practice and to explore these ideas further.

The full programme can be downloaded here.
