This project explores the intersection between Children, Cities and Climate Change and has three primary aims:

  1. To model the potential co-benefits to child and adolescent health that could arise from changes to the construction and design of cities
  2. To understand young people’s views about their cities and
  3. To collate and share through a diverse range of channels our research findings and young peoples’ visions for healthy cities of the future.
