This Digital Child Friendly City Flip-book captures an engagement session with 120 pupils from the Fitzalan School Cluster Conference. This will now be used to influence the development of the Child Friendly City Action Plan.
As Cardiff advances its ambition to become globally recognised as a Unicef Child Friendly City, it is important to remember that involving children and young people in the design and shaping of the city is central to a child’s rights approach. Our CFC programme of work is built around the views of children and young people with various engagement sessions being run in schools and communities across the city over the discovery phase. Our Child Friendly City Action Plan will outline how we aim to embed children’s rights across public services and wider partnership including workforce training, policy development, rights respecting politicians and active participation of C&YP. Our engagement phase has highlighted three key areas of work to focus on during the CFC programme these are Education, Family and Belonging and Health. This Digital Child Friendly City Flipbook captures an engagement session with 120 pupils from the Fitzalan Cluster. This will now be used to influence the development of the CFC Action Plan. Thank you to all the pupils and staff that took part in this important work.
Pupils were asked to take part in two key activities. Activity One: WHAT IS A CHILD FRIENDLY CITY? • What does it feel like? • What opportunities / activities are there for C&YP? • How do C&YP have their voice heard? • How do C&YP learn about their rights? Activity Two: design a poster in groups around the three main topic areas Education, Health and Family?
