We are very pleased to announce the publication of Designing Cities with Children and Young People: Beyond Playgrounds and Skate Parks by Routledge. Edited by Kate Bishop and Linda Corkery the book focuses on promoting better outcomes in the built environment for children and young people in urban environments.
A key aim of Designing Cities with Children and Young People is to cultivate champions for children and young people among urban development professionals. The content moves from how we think about children in the built environment, what we have discovered through research, how we frame the task and legislate for it, and how we design for and with children.
Through its international and interdisciplinary group of authors, Designing Cities with Children and Young People intends to build bridges and provide a resource for policy makers, social planners, design practitioners and students.
