DESIGNING CHILDREN'S ENVIRONMENTS
Credit points: 15
One of the original motivations of design and planning of towns of cities in the Victorian era was to improve the physical and moral health of children during a period of industrialisation. During the 20th century, health planning in relation to children centred on provision of parks, and issues of youth deliquency. Now, planning for children's health has experienced a rejuvenation with contemporary debate about children's citizenship, mental, social and physical health. This has occurred alongside specific research and programming aimed at improving maternal and children's health, education about children's development, and inclusion of young people in matters that affect their lives. However the links between health, education and the design and planning of towns and cities are still being reestablished. This subject introduces fundamental concepts of children's rights, health and development within a planning policy context.
