UNICEF Australia has partnered up with the South Australian Department for Education and Child Development to pilot a project called Child Friendly Cities.



UNICEF Child Friendly Cities


As part of its child rights mandate, this project will encourage communities to let children be involved in the planning and design of the city. It will take into consideration how a child sees, interacts and moves through the urban space.

The initiative will provide resources, guidance, indicators and recognition of child friendly councils.



UNICEF Child Friendly Cities


According to the UNICEF Australia website, a child friendly city will be actively engaged in fulfilling the right of every young citizen to:

- Influence decisions about their city or community

- Express their opinion about the community they want

- Participate in family, community and social life

- Be an equal citizen of their city with access to every service, regardless of ethnic origin, religion, income, gender or disability.

- Actively supports the vulnerable members of their community to engage with civil society and improve their circumstance

- Drink safe water and have access to proper sanitation

- Be protected from exploitation, violence and abuse

- Walk safely in the streets on their own

- Meet friends and play

- Have green spaces for plants and animals

- Live in an unpolluted environment

- Participate in cultural and social events

- Learn about their human rights in schools and community spaces

UNICEF Australia will work with the South Australian Government, pilot councils and community partners to develop and test child friendly initiatives in businesses, schools, hospitals and community spaces.

If you are aware of child friendly businesses, activities and community spaces which do a really good job taking into consideration children's needs, please share them below.
