hi Tim, congratulations, this is a great book.its kind of guidance for the designers. i was wondering for the extremely urbanised cities like Dhaka, where we don't have sufficient playground, the only solution could be playstreet. which i am focusing on my own research. but its very difficult to make the parents understand the importance of play there. also the residence and policy makers, they are not really prioritizing the importance of children's play, i know dhaka has other large issues. what do you think, how can we raise the awareness? participation in this street play initiative is very important.

Irene Caselli

Thanks, Tim, hugely inspiring as usual! Do you think that the coronavirus has made people more aware of the need for more child-friendly cities and for the need for more unstructured play in people’s lives?
Dennie Wolf
55:06
Understand the cautions about participatory method and expecting kids to generate solutions, but what about young adults - who will be the next generation of city hall - what is the role for them as play mentors, researchers, observers and reporting — growing in them the sensitivity to the child lens — as in Monuments Project in US where adolescents begin this work

how important do you see it is to integrate a connection to the natural world in making cities better for children? Both for the adults and the children involved of course?
Jenny Jowle
58:40
Here in Bradford the council have typically installed fences around play areas as a way to protect children from dogs also in the park/green space. Tim, have you come across this before and what advice could you give on how we could persuade the council to not do this?
Emmanuel d'Harcourt
58:58
Thank you so much, Tim. One question I have is on this issue of political weight. Early childhood development in cities in but one of many areas in which the welfare of children gets lip service but does not seem to have political weight, and therefore public investment. To those of us in the field, this seems absurd--but do we have insights as to why societies care so little for future adults, and what we can do to change that? Huge question I know, but must be asked I think
Anna Maria Hellner, Örebro SWE

Hello from Örebro, Sweden. What is the best way to encourage start up adventure playgrounds?
Megha Tyagi
59:59
Hi Tim, I was curious to know about your views on the issues of high-rise gated community neighbourhoods that have emerged as a symbol of progress in the peripheral areas of many cities in India. Parents living in these gated communities don't see the value of child-friendly initiatives outside their boundaries.

Q - Covid has further compounded the lack of everyday freedoms experienced by children in cities - how can we effectively use the 'civic recovery' (post covid) narrative to effectively advocate for more child friendly cities?
Tim Gill
01:01:53
It is worth googling photographs of Skanderbeg square Tirana. The change is amazing!
Aitan Mizrahi
01:03:42
I’m curious if we adopted more play features through out the urban landscape for all ages (adults included) the value of play will increase thus encouraging public officials to create a culture of play as a priority.
Priscilla Rocha- Niterói
01:07:16
In Niterói, Brazil, we are implementing, through a project called Caminhanit, walkable routes for children to go to schools and return safely to their homes, with urban planning and renovation of public space to make it more attractive and safe.
Mara Mintze
01:09:54
To the panelists: have each of your cities spent time creating a public messaging campaign around child-friendly cities and the work you are doing so the general public knows about these ideas and demands them?
Christine Gomez
01:10:24
How inspiring to hear about young children being put at the heart of the community and design!

To the panelists: What are the main enablers and constrains for policy makers to bring child-friendliness to the agenda? I wonder what could be possible incentives to make child-friendliness mainstream in city planning.

From Brazil we have here today most of the Urban95 brazilian cities represented: Boa Vista (the amazing former mayor Teresa Surita), Recife, São Paulo, Fortaleza, Niteroi, Pelotas, Caruaru, Jundiaí, Campinas, Crato, Brasileia… A lot of inspiration for all of us, thank you Tim and thank you Tullio for the amazing work in Recife!
claudia vidigal
01:18:04
Nice to learn with Telaviv and Tirana too! amazing work!
Tim Gill
01:18:29
Fortaleza is another case study in my book.
Gil (Guillermo) Penalosa
01:20:39
Pilots. Tactical urbanism. Anyone can do it... but, we must keep in mind that those are not the end, just a means to show what is possible. It's about scaling citywide, prioritizing low income areas. I've seen Tirana and Tel Aviv, before and after. Amazing. Best? It's doable everywhere.

I love the idea of 'co-existence'! How do we convince people this is a positive force for all?
Jáson Torres
01:23:14
Congratulations on the innovative actions, Tullio!
Gil (Guillermo) Penalosa
01:23:59
Tim's great book shows many examples. Give it to as many decision makers as possible. Let's adapt & improve. Tirana or Tel Aviv will not have to get worse for another city to copy. It's win-win. Time to learn and share. Urgency, creating better post COVID cities.

carolina tarrio
01:27:04
A good way to make big changes is to transfer public investment to neighbours and let the comunity administrate the money, insted of the city hall. We.ve just had the opportunity to do this in small scale to revitalize a squre in the city of São Paulo. And we did so much, with the comunity, than the government would do! So it will be so interesting to study ways to do so: let people, comunities propose projects and administrate public money
Raymond Lorenzo
01:27:30
