W ciągu ostatnich 60 lat planowanie miast skupiało się na samochodach. Miejska przestrzeń dla ludzi wypełniła się pojazdami spalinowymi. Podczas tej przemiany zapomniano o dzieciach; tak samo jak o innych czynnikach zmniejszających przepustowość ruchu samochodowego – miały zniknąć z ulic. W zamian zbudowano „rezerwaty” dla dzieci. I nazwano je placami zabaw. Dlatego, że zabawa i zwykłe przebywanie w dotychczasowym otoczeniu nie było już możliwe. Ulica stała się wrogim miejscem, pełnym strachu i niebezpieczeństw – i tak jest do dziś.
The continuing requirement for better urban transport systems and the need for a healthier environment has added to the increasing success of this annual meeting which attracts international delegates from many different countries. Innovative systems, new approaches and original ideas need to be thoroughly tested and critically evaluated before they can be implemented in practice, which highlights the importance of the meeting. Moreover, there is a growing need for integration with telecommunications systems and IT applications in order to improve safety, security and efficiency.

Every two years, the Child in the City Foundation organises the Child in the City World Conference. Started in 2002, each year the World Conference has been held in a different European city and has been attended by 300 delegates.
The world conference, which takes place every two years, is a key opportunity for children’s professionals, city planners, social workers, academics, designers and policymakers to share knowledge, good practice and research findings from the various disciplines that are important to the shared aim of creating child-friendly cities. Creating dialogue is the most important aspect of the conference.
The International Research Conference is a federated organization dedicated to bringing together a significant number of diverse scholarly events for presentation within the conference program. Events will run over a span of time during the conference depending on the number and length of the presentations. With its high quality, it provides an exceptional value for students, academics and industry researchers.
