Second call for papers – Towards the Child Friendly City


The European Network of Child Friendly Cities is inviting papers for presentations, workshops or poster displays for its Towards the Child Friendly City conference. Submissions must address the overall theme of the conference – children’s rights in the built environment.

In addition, submissions should address one of the following specific themes: 

  • Planning, housing, and the neighbourhood environment
  • Activism and children’s voices
  • Children’s mobility, travel, and transport.


‘Play and playwork in the child-friendly city’has also been added as a new theme, due to popular demand.

The Network is interested in research, policy, and practice.

Closing date for submissions: 25 September 2019
