BUILDING CITIES FOR CHILDREN AND YOUNG PEOPLE
NATIONAL GUIDANCE, INSPIRATION AND GENERAL ADVICE IN SWEDEN
All outdoor settings including schools and pre-schools have never been more important than today for: play, experiencing nature, learning and everyday mobility for children and young people. For this reason the Swedish Government has asked for national guidance, inspiration and general advice for professionals engaged with planning, designing and managing outdoor environments aimed at serving children’s and young people’s needs. Presented here is an extract of these recommendations based on different national political goals, useable even for educators who use the public outdoor space.
