For this year’s 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

Detailed information about the themes can be found here.
