This handbook aims to raise the number and quality of built interventions that have been co-designed with children affected by displacement in the urban context: ultimately advancing their wellbeing. It provides practical insights regarding interventions that put children’s wellbeing first, and at the intersection of participatory design, forced displacement, and the urban context.
However, an existing range of high-quality resources and guidelines that focus on single aspects, such as children’s participation, forced displacement, participatory design and child-friendly cities, is acknowledged throughout. The reader is invited to switch to these when they offer more detailed information.
This handbook is the starting point for a longer conversation on the importance of engaging children affected by displacement in co-designing built interventions.
