Every two years, the Child in the City Foundation organises the Child in the City World Conference. Started in 2002, each year the World Conference has been held in a different European city.
From 2017 on, we also organise International Seminars, each focused on a specific theme to really go in-depth.
The 11th Child in the City World Conference – Building the Future
20 – 22 November 2023 Brussels, Belgium
Would you like to learn, share and connect with the community on various topics about child-friendly cities?
We look forward to seeing you at the 11th World Conference with a 3 day program full of inspiring keynote presentations, workshops and field trips. Call for abstracts is open. We will be delighted to receive innovative, high quality abstract proposals that will be grouped together in our ‘varia workshops’.
