Podcast: Prof Claire Freeman – Children’s changing worlds: Do our cities work for children?
Professor Claire Freeman is Associate Professor and Director of the Post Graduate Planning Programme at the Department of Geography, University of Otago, New Zealand
Children’s worlds are complex and undergoing immense changes reflective of both social and physical changes in the societies in which they live. Children’s lives are simultaneously becoming richer and more deprived. This conundrum is explored by examining the main activity spaces of children, radiating out from home and neighbourhood to cultural space, natural space and children’s relationship to the city centre
