Often times urban planning does not consider the needs of its youngest citizens. There is an opportunity to make urban planning more inclusive towards children, and all ages for that matter! I'm interested in how the design of our public spaces, transportation systems, public services and streets impacts children, and the ways in which we can foster more child friendly cities. I am also interested in inclusive community engagement practices, urban design and creative placemaking. Currently, I am investigating the potential to open Toronto's neighbourhood streets for children's outdoor play and the social benefits it brings for all members of community.
