Shaping Spaces for Gen Z- International Forum
Wed. 8 March 2017, 8:30 am – 4:30 pm AEDT
The international forum will focus on environments that foster healthy childhood development in the broadest sense of this term i.e. including mental and physical capacities, social and psychological development and connectedness to community. Childhood obesity, physical inactivity, environmental design, child empowerment and the right to play and interact will be central themes.
This event is a unique opportunity to critically reflect on the current state, to discuss collectively emerging opportunities and to create a realistic pathway forward that should enable better environments for the future generations of this country to grow up in.
Stakeholders including academics, decision makers, policy makers, NGO’s and private sector groups representing professionals in public health, childhood development, urban planning, urban design, landscape architects, transport, economics, art and philosophy and public services are encouraged to participate.
