Bristol Mayor highlights Child Friendly City initiative in 2015 State of the City address

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
