10/31 Webinar on How Childhood Indicates Quality of life in Urban Areas



During the second semester of 2018, Equidad para la Infancia, Equity for Children’s, Latin America section, will carry out a series of webinars (in Spanish) on how childhood wellbeing can serve as an indicator of the quality of life in local contexts.

Based on the studies performed in various Latin American cities by Equidad para la Infancia, Fundacion Arcor as well as other partners from foundations and the academic sector, the webinars will present successful case studies. These will be accompanied by an analysis of the local evidence, their urban context, problems, best practices, and propose ways to scale them up and replicate them elsewhere. The analysis will be done through a children’s rights perspective taking into consideration the SDGs, and with an equity approach.
