Key concepts

This section introduces the key concepts underpinning this handbook. It discusses how co-design can be used with children in urban settings affected by displacement to create child responsive built interventions that enhance children’s wellbeing.

After introducing child wellbeing, this section discusses:
• children in urban settings affected by displacement;
• the importance of space and play; and
• the importance of child responsive interventions, given the strong link between child wellbeing and the built environment.

The final part examines the impact of co-design with children on child responsive built interventions, as well as outlining the challenges and risks involved, particularly in working with children affected by displacement.
