What is a child friendly city?

​A child friendly city is a place where children and young people are welcomed, encouraged, celebrated and are equal citizens based on the United Nations Convention on the Rights of the Child.

The United Nations Convention on the Rights of the Child (adopted by the UN in 1989) sets out internationally agreed minimum standards. The convention contains 54 articles which cover the main areas of children’s lives. The UK signed in 1991, and they apply to every child under 18 without exception.
