On May 27, a mixed format round table discussion Yards, By-streets and the World: A Residential Neighborhood for Children and Teenagers will be held within the 5th Annual International Symposium Education and City: The Third Mission of the University.
The round table will include a presentation of the guidebook Yards, By-streets and the World: A Residential Neighborhood for Children and Teenagers, Parents and Developers. The guidebook is addressed to developers and families with children – to those who buy housing in new residential areas. The guidebook embodies a holistic approach to designing urban spaces for families with children, based on the scientific studies about the age-related physical and psychological needs of children and teenagers and on a parental demand for urban infrastructure development. The urban environment is considered as a message that a child receives from an understanding and attentive adult: “I see you, you are important to me”. This approach was substantiated by a number of experts in the fields of psychology, education studies, pediatrics, motor development and ecology. In writing the guidebook, the specialists of the Architecture Bureau “Druzhba” were supported by the expertise of the academic staff of the Laboratory of Child Development at MCU’s Research Institute of Urban Studies and Global Education. Lenstroytrest, one of the oldest real estate developers in St Petersburg, initiated publication of the guidebook.
Tatiana Le-van, Leading Research Fellow of the Laboratory of Child Development at the MCU’s Research Institute of Urban Studies and Global Education and Moderator of this event, will invite the audience to discuss:
