Towards a Child Friendly City
Thursday, 12 November 2015 from 14:00 to 16:00 (GMT)
‘If a city is successful for children, then it will be successful for all people’. What would Bristol look like as a truly child friendly city? What needs to happen to make it a reality?
Join us for a creative and collaborative afternoon which brings together a diverse audience including children and young people to collectively vision how Bristol can become a more child friendly city.
This event will be opened by Mayor George Ferguson and introduced by John Readman (Strategic Director of People, Bristol City Council). The event includes Penny Hay (Bath Spa University/5x5x5=creativity) sharing the experiences of the Bath Child Friendly City campaign, pecha kucha style presentations on child-focussed research by Dr Debbie Watson and colleagues (University of Bristol) and creative facilitation from the young artists of Room 13, Hareclive.
