Kids in the city

NZ Centre for Sustainable Cities’ Karen Witten talks to Radio NZ’s Kathryn Ryan about the experiences of children in our inner cities and suburbs – their travel, physical activity and independent mobility in their neighbourhoods. She considers guidelines for child-friendly high density developments and how to make streets safer and easier for walkers and cyclists.
