Be a speaker at Child in the City World Conference 2022

You are invited to submit your abstract for the 10th edition of the Child in the City World Conference, being held in Dublin from 5-7 October 2022.

The International Child in the City Foundation, Dublin City Council and the Irish Department of Children and Youth Affairs are eagerly awaiting content ideas from anyone working for the benefit of children in cities, and who would like to share their thoughts as a speaker at this internationally-renowned event.

For this special 10th anniversary edition, we have chosen the overarching theme, Making Connections, focusing specifically on the following five topics:

1. Connecting the present with the past
2. Connecting green and play
3. Connecting children’s (mental) health and play
4. Connecting children’s participation to urban policies
5. Re-connecting children to society during/after COVID 19.

Be a speaker

Would you like to present at the conference your expertise, project or research that fit within these five themes? Submit your abstract before 28 February 2022.


The call for abstracts will close on 28 February 2022. We will inform you in the second week of April 2022 if your proposal has been accepted.

We look forward to hearing from you!
