Play, Social Justice and Urban Space is an exciting international event exploring children’s use of space. How do children navigate their local environments? How do they claim space, making child-friendly environments in contested urban space? What role do adults have?

IPA Scotland looks forward to welcoming you to this unique opportunity for planners, designers, playworkers, international development professionals, architects, children’s rights advocates and educators to hear perspectives from India and Scotland, and join the conversation.
