We were delighted that the Mayor gave endorsement
to the Bristol Child Friendly City initiative and our recent Symposium event in his annual 2015 State of the City address last week.
‘Last week I attended the inaugural
Bristol Child Friendly City Symposium which included children from the
inspiring Room 13 art room in Hartcliffe and from the wonderful Felix Road
Adventure Playground in Easton. This symposium was the first step on our
journey to becoming formally recognised by UNICEF as a Child Friendly City.
Because a city that is good our children is good for us all. As such, I
will ensure everything we do takes children into proper consideration – as we
do for our older population. This approach, working with our young people, will
undoubtedly benefit all of us’. George
Ferguson, Nov 2015
