Innocenti Insights Cities with Children: Child friendly cities in Italy Published: 2006 Innocenti Insights Child Friendly Cities in Italy describes the evolution of childhood in Italy and the emergence of a new culture of the city. It analyses the consideration given to the Child Friendly Cities initiative and in particular the attention provided to the child as an active citizen and the role of the city in promoting the participation of young people in decision-making processes at the local level. The study looks at the specific experience of 12 of the more than 100 Italian cities that have adopted this approach, considering planning, budgeting and monitoring plans of action for children and ways through which children’s views are taken into account. The study provides recommendations on how to further promote children’s rights within local governance. + - Cite this publication | No. of pages: 50 | Thematic area: Urban Child | Tags: child related policies, child-friendly cities, community participation × COPY BIBLIOGRAPHIC CITATION 2006 Cities with Children: Child friendly cities in Italy. , pp. 50.
