About This Project

In 2021, Metropolis – a global network of major cities and metropolitan areas – launched a global call for children to draw their hopes for the city of the future. The resulting report: “How do children imagine the future of their metropolises” is the result of an analysis of children’s contributions in response to that call, with insights on elements of the metropolis that are essential to children’s everyday lives, with particular emphasis on outdoor play! Throughout the report there are several recommendations for policymakers including involving children in urban planning, planning with accessibility and resilience in mind, and promoting positive reciprocal relationships between humans and nature.
