Urban Places: Handbook of Global Practices on Place Making for Children

Place matters: Handbook of global best practices on place making for children is designed to be a step towards learning from small-scale yet impactful initiatives from across the globe. The book documents real-time global examples and acknowledge the initiatives that have contributed towards making cities better places for children. Making cities from the perspective of children is still a nascent subject globally, even more so in India. Although sincere efforts have been made towards empowering children with basic rights, the urban sector has provided only the minimum to fulfil their everyday needs. While organisations working on children’s rights have highlighted the need to empower all children with basic human rights, it is critical to ensure the built environment is also designed keeping their needs in mind. Especially for children within the 0-5 years age group and their caregivers as their needs have to be provided locally to be easily accessible; as they are more dependent on their parents and caregivers. The handbook emphasises on the early childhood needs and elements within the built environment that contribute positively to the children’s overall development including their cognitive and motor skills.
