Workshop 6: UIA WP ARCHITECTURE & CHILDREN MEMBERS
The UIA operates through three Commissions – Architectural Education, Professional Practice and International Competitions – and a variety of global or regional Work Programmes grouped under six general themes: Responsible Architecture, Architecture and Society, Urbanisation, Habitat, Cultural identity, Facilities.
The UIA Architecture & Children Work Programme is a global programme, which falls within the theme "Architecture and Society". The UIA Built Environment network aims to help Architects and Teachers everywhere show young people what makes good Architecture and a Sustainable environment. Developing young people’s awareness of architecture, the city and sustainable development is an urgent and vital challenge. With access to knowledge in these areas they will be able - as adult citizens, users, clients and decision makers – to make their voices heard and influence the political, economic and social strategies, which will shape their cities and their environment.
Approximately 25 members of this working group will attend the Opening Conferences of the Biennial and several of them will share their experiences about city and childhood in this workshop.
