9th Child in the City World Conference


“Children as residents and our youngest members of society are important to us”

Michael Häupl, Mayor City of Vienna

“Vienna is a highly liveable city for all citizens, for children, young people and adults; people who were born here and people who came to Vienna and made it their new home town.”

Children as residents and our youngest members of society are particularly important to us. Vienna is characterised by a diverse range of offerings for children unique throughout Europe. We have a very good education system with kindergartens and schools which take different needs into account. We have strong out-of-school child and youth services, which are unparalleled in Europe. We have parliaments for children and many other participatory projects at a local and city-wide level.

Vienna is an ideal location for the international conference ‘Child in the City’. We would like to invite you to ‘Child in the City’ in Vienna to learn from the top-class specialist inputs on child-friendly cities from all over the world, to discuss children’s rights and to look for new ideas for child-friendly urban developments. We would also like to invite you to get to know Vienna over the conference days with its options for children and get inspired for your own city by Vienna.

We look forward to seeing you at ‘Child in the City’ in September 2018.

Michael Häupl, Mayor,
Jürgen Czernohorszky, City Councillor for Youth, Education, Integration and Human Resources
