Webinar invitation: How to create participatory public spaces for children?

Equity for Children at The New School, together with the ARCOR Foundation, are organizing a webinar with representatives of five experiences developed in Argentina, Chile, Colombia and Uruguay to present their practices aimed at increasing children's participation in the design and appropriation of public spaces.

What does public space mean to children? How can they be part of it? How can initiatives, programs or
policies be developed to promote their participation? Does access to public space create equity? These
are some of the questions around which the debate between the following Latin American experts will
take place. The main objective is to analyze ways to create inclusive public spaces for children and to
promote their participation in them.

“Dreams of a Plaza”, Argentina, Santa Fe, Rosario
“Caroya, City of Childhood”, Argentina, Cordoba, Colonia Caroya
“Designing Small Communities”, Chile, Mariquia-Region de los Ríos
“Garabateando: radio micro-broadcasts with children”, Colombia, Neiva, rural communities
“La Jarana: recreational program”, El Abrojo Civil Association, Uruguay, Montevideo.

The event will be held in Spanish without translation.
The event is free and open to the public, register here.
