Urban Inequities and Children

Urban Inequities and Children

CONFERENCE to take Place at The New School, NY, 28 April 16:30-19:30 and 29 April, 9:00-13:00

28-29 April 2016 | New York, USA

 Equity for Children will host a conference with the Center for New York City Affairs, Fundacion Corona and the Van Leer Foundation to address key challenges in identifying urban childhood inequities and poverty 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.

Intra-urban inequities, particularly within mega-cities, indelibly mark a child’s life from birth.  Globally, over half the world’s people – including more than a billion children – now live in cities and towns, many without access to basic services. In Latin America, three out of four children live in urban areas and 45 percent live in poverty.  Analyses and measures of poverty and inequality that generate evidence about the impact of public policies are crucial in order to improve childhood quality of life and rights in cities.  Without an in-depth assessment, policies often fail to support the citizenry they are designed to assist.

The two-day event will feature an open forum on Day 1 with presenters and audience from global agencies, research institutions, foundations and NGOs.  On Day 2, a closed, smaller session will discuss ways to address child inequities through practical, current projects.
