In collaboration with Vital Cities, the city of Bruges is organising an inspiration day on Wednesday 25 October 2023 at Sport Vlaanderen’s Sport Innovation Campus (10:00 - 16:00). It will be our pleasure to look back on the past five years, present our ongoing and new projects, and to dream together about the future of the city through the eyes of children and youth. 

Vital Cities will be responsible for session 3 ‘’Child and youth-friendly (public) space’. In this session, we will further explore the following questions: What space do children and young people need in a city? How exactly can this space be designed and how can children and youth be actively engaged in the process?

You can find the complete programme here.
