10th Child in the City World Conference
Making Connections

The International Child in the City Foundation, Dublin City Council and the Irish Department of Children, Equality, Disability, Integration and Youth were happy to welcome you at the 10th edition of the Child in the City World Conference from 5 – 7 October 2022 in the beautiful city of Dublin.


The flagship Child in the City event in Dublin brought together child professionals, municipal policymakers, city planners, academics, urban designers, social workers, teachers, and many more, to share ideas and solutions for making our cities truly child-friendly. Over 130 international speakers presented their latest projects and research.

This year’s theme is Making Connections and with this anniversary edition we aimed to make connections between not only children and cities but also different disciplines and professionals. From 5-7 October, we heard about your knowledge, seeing examples of your good practice in action and delving into your research findings from all of the diverse disciplines that are vital to our shared aim of ensuring cities and towns are what they need to be for children and young people.
