‘Children are a kind of indicator species. If a city is successful for children, then it will be successful for all people’
The Bristol Child Friendly City Group was formed in 2015 by three grassroots organisations: the Architecture Centre, Playing Out and Room 13, with support from colleagues at the University of Bristol and Bristol City Council.
There are three main aims:
1/ All children have safe, independent mobility and access to the city of Bristol and its resources, including streets, communities, green space, the city centre, play, sport, arts, culture/youth culture
2/ All children feel heard and have a say in decision making on things that affect their lives.
3/ Adults in positions of power make decisions with all children in mind.
The Bristol Child Friendly working group partners are:
