What if there were a global open-source course teaching graduate students how to design child-friendly cities? We piloted a model for the course this year at the Hebrew University - see link to course: https://bit.ly/2XP7DPY

Then, in an intensive workshop in Istanbul. together with people who teach related courses in Turkey, Albania, Holland, Scotland, New York, we hammered out the structure for an international course.
Our goal is to equip expert practitioner faculty with a packet of course materials including detailed lecture outlines, readings and videos, discussion questions and assignments, that they can then adapt to the specific local conditions. The course is built to encourage partnership with a local municipality, who could participate in the course, guide students, and receive as a course deliverable a detailed analysis and recommendations for child-friendly neighborhood design.
