A Workshop on “Public Parks for Children: Urban Islands of Freedom?” will be held at ISEG on the 25th of October,from 09:30 to 18:00, in Room 101 (New Quelhas).
This Workshop is part of the CRiCity research project- Children and their urban rights: fighting urban inequality through the participatory design of child-friendly cities.
The CRiCity project focuses on children’s relationships with urban public places in two major Portuguese cities, Lisbon and Porto, using a child-centred ethnographic and participatory approach. Children’s perspectives are transposed into urban planning through a bottom-up participatory methodology, involving the local community and the State, with the objective of submitting proposals for a child-friendly city.
This workshop has been organised by SOCIUS – Centre for Research in Economic and Organisational Sociology, the instigating institution of the CRiCity project, in partnership with Universidade do Porto – Languages Faculty, the Sociology Institute of Universidade do Porto and the School of Social and Political Sciences (ISCSP/Ulisboa), as well as the Centre for Public Policies and Administration (CAPP).
