What would Bristol look like as a truly child friendly city? What needs to happen to make it a reality? ‘If a city is successful for children, then it will be successful for all people’. Join us for a creative and collaborative afternoon which brings together a diverse audience including children and young people from neighbourhoods across the city. The event includes talks from inspiring speakers and researchers, culminating in the collective visioning of how Bristol can become a more child-friendly city. Booking is required.
