Cecilia Vaca Jones

The ‘livability’ ranking for cities was first put forward in 1984 as essentially an economic indicator. However, we should be able to assess ‘livability’ of cities from the perspective of the citizens from youngest to the eldest. In a megacity like Istanbul with 15 million residents, the child population is close to 4 million, 1 million are made up of 0-4-year-olds… In this presentation, we will hear of stories of cities that started caring for playspaces and children from many places around the world.
