"A city without fear": Children dream of a life in post-pandemic cities

Cities 4 Children - Global Alliance November 2021

Author Marta Briones asks us to consider, "The Covid-19 pandemic brought urban life to a halt and turned children’s lives upside-down overnight. Across the world, children no longer had lessons or physical contact with their friends, and could not play or exercise outdoor. Strict lockdowns and mobility restrictions have shown the importance of more and better public spaces in our cities."

The Metropolis Through Children’s Eyes initiative was launched by Metropolis, World Association of the Major Metropolises, to convey children’s opinions, experiences and suggestions – expressed through drawings – to local and regional governments across their network.
