9th Child in the City World Conference


Child in the City World Conference gathers delegates from 36 countries

The number of registrations for the Child in the City World Conference continues to increase. So far we will welcome 230 delegates from 36 different countries all over the world. We are really proud to bring such a large international group of people together, who all actively work to create child-friendly cities. 

Participants will be flying in from Australia, Brazil, Canada, China, Israel, India, Indonesia, Japan, Turkey, New Zealand, the UK and the US. As well as a number of European countries.

The conference is all about learning about best practice, exchanging ideas on how to turn policy theory into reality, and ultimately being part of a global community which knows – and more importantly cares – about the challenges. With this amount of delegates so far already, this edition promises to be the biggest edition so far! The registration is still open.


The Child in the City World Conference takes place on 24-26 September in Vienna. More than 100 speakers will take the stage to share their knowledge and expertise. Moreover, various field trips to child-friendly projects in Vienna and a poster exhibition are part of the programme.
