22 September 2020 Child in the City Webinar

Making Connections in Times of Corona

Making connections in the time of COVID-19 seems to be more difficult than ever. We have all been isolated in our homes, combining work and personal, career and care, and teaching and play. But what do we know about the significance of this crisis to families and children?

This was the central question of our first Child in the City webinar, which took place on 22 September, between 14:00 and 16:00 Central European Time.

We were very proud to be able to bring together highly esteemed experts who reflected on the effects of the coronavirus for children growing up. We focused on three different topics with our three key experts:

Play: Tim Gill Independent researcher and consultant Rethinking Childhood, UK
Health: Jon Sigfusson, Director, Planet Youth | ICSRA, Iceland
Urban Planning: Helen Jarvis PhD, Reader in Urban Social Geography at Newcastle University, UK
