Watch this 17mins video on how children are really useful in the planning process:
Link to recording of the NLA webinar mentioned below - Participation and planning: the benefits of engaging with young people - interesting and useful:
"Children’s Play and Independent Mobility in 2020: Results from the British Children’s Play Survey"
Sounds great - I’m working today but will check out the TED talk later.
I'm happy to chat to St Aidan's
I can talk to Stroud Green Primary where my children are.
I guess we'll need to organise an particular approach to the subject.
It would probably be a good way of recruiting adult (parent) members too.
I think these Islington schools are in our area - primaries: Poole's Park, Ambler and Christ the King - and secondary: Arts and Media - and several preschools and nurseries
Noice, I feel if we get a few schools (and by proxy) parents involved, then it would be really helpful - we've got three good ones in our catchment - St Aidan's, Stroud Green and Parkwood that I know about - are there any on the Islington side of things?
I just saw this video from TED Talks, I think it really expresses all the things that I have thought were missing from local planning in FP for a long time!
I think it would be excellent to include children from local schools. My children just watched it with me and are super-excited by the idea and are already re-designing Finsbury Park.
