Placemaking for a Healthier Belfast

Monday 2 December 2019

Assembly Buildings, 2–10 Fisherwick Place, Belfast

healthier-cities

The built environment has an important influence on a child’s development, particularly through its adverse impacts on health challenges that affect children disproportionately, such as obesity, asthma, unintentional injuries and mental health and well–being. Child friendly placemaking is about the need for planning authorities and professionals working to shape the built environment to consider children as a way to create places that are healthier as well as more inclusive, equitable and people centred. Such an approach goes beyond the protection of basic children’s rights and promotes a wider definition of children’s well–being.

This seminar aims to promote the concept and good practice of child friendly placemaking among policymakers, planners and health professionals.

Speakers include  

Dr Kate Bishop Senior Lecturer, Faculty of Built Environment University of New South Wales, Australia

Dr Kate Bishop specialises in the research and design of environments for children with special needs; child and youth–friendly urban planning and design; and participatory methodologies with children and young people.
