Child in the City Conference: how to make cities child friendly
The Child in the City Foundation and the European Network Child Friendly Cities (ENCFC) are organising the Child in the City Conference, to be held from 27 to 29 October 2010 in Florence, Italy.

The overall aim of the conference is to promote child friendly cities and to inspire these to reduce child poverty, notably in the context of the 2010 European Year for Combating Poverty and Social Exclusion.

Other themes will include assessing the degree of child friendliness of cities and communities, promoting active citizenship of children and young people and identifying concrete local initiatives in terms of promoting and defending a child's right to play.

The conference should bring together local, regional and national authorities, youth policy makers, designers and producers of playground equipment, urban designers, planners and developers, UN agencies and NGOs, among others.
The event is organised in collaboration with the Association of Netherlands Municipalities (VNG), a Council of European Municipalities and Regions (CEMR) member association.
The conference objectives are notably reflected in CEMR's position paper on an EU Strategy for Youth.
