University course for Latin American urban planners

Education for urban planners in Latin America does not encourage them to contemplate the needs of children under five and their parents. The continent has urbanised rapidly, with four in five Latin Americans now living in cities and millions of children being raised in urban slums.

This project will create a research and design cluster at Mackenzie Presbyterian University in São Paulo, combining research and practice to create a course on child-friendly city design that can be delivered to groups ranging from experienced professionals to graduate students.
