Equity For Children Hosts Urban Inequities and Children Conference

Published on May 13, 2016

Equity for Children recently hosted a conference in partnership with the Center for New York City Affairs, with the support of the Bernard van Leer Foundation, the Comparative Research Programme on Poverty (CROP) at the University of Bergen, Norway, Fundacion Corona, The New School’s Global Urban Futures project, the Inter-American Development Bank, and the Milano School of International Affairs, Management, and Urban Policy, to address key challenges in identifying urban childhood inequities from birth to five years; how to gather, measure and translate evidence about this issue into action; and how children’s views can be included in the design of cities to promote equity for all inhabitants. The two-day event featured an open forum on Day 1 with presenters and audience from practitioner agencies, research institutions, foundations and NGOs.  On Day 2, a closed, smaller session discussed ways to address child inequities through practical, current projects.
