Urban95 Challenge: Designing cities that support healthy child development
Urban95 – конкурс, который предлагает взглянуть на современные города с высоты 95 сантиметров, то есть глазами ребенка. В состязании участвуют идеи, которые позволят сделать город более безопасным и комфортным для детей до пяти лет. Рассмотреть можно организацию жилых кварталов, общественных мест, зеленых зон и других пространств. Лучшие проекты будут реализованы.
As part of its new strategy, the Bernard van Leer Foundation has launched an initiative called Urban95. Urban95 asks a simple question: if you could see the city from an elevation of 95 centimetres – the average height of a healthy 3-year-old child – what would you do differently? How would you organise neighbourhoods, public space, green areas, housing, and transportation? What else would you change or improve in the city?
The Urban95 Challenge is open to creative ideas and projects which promote the wellbeing of young children in cities from the prenatal period up to the age of five.
We are looking for projects in three areas:
Influence: projects that find innovative ways to get city officials and community leaders to think more deeply and creatively about the needs of children under five and their parents;
Design innovations: projects that make changes in a city’s built environment and, as a result, have a positive impact on children under five and their parents;
Performance monitoring: projects that collect data or use existing data to monitor how the city is performing from a young child’s point of view.
