Designing healthy, sustainable cities with children and young people
The session will focus on the intersection of climate change, cities and child and adolescent health. It will open with a presentation of findings from the Children, Cities and Climate (CCC) project that will share new data on the health co-benefits for children and young people of improving urban air quality. The results of an online global survey asking young people about their views on their cities, with a particular focus on air pollution, will also be presented.
Participants will then be invited to ask questions, share their views on the research and about air quality where they live and suggest ideas for designing healthy, sustainable cities with and for children and young people.
