Accrediting Bath as a Child Friendly City – major event at the egg

Wednesday, October 1, 2014 from 6:00 – 8:00 pm
Creating an amazing child friendly Bath moves a step closer with this inter-generational event. You are invited to join us.

Following on from an afternoon youth convention where the region’s young people will share the artistic results of earlier discussions and workshops, Cultural Forum members will meet the other partners in this initiative and hear the needs of children and young people alongside experts in how to gain Unicef Child Friendly City status for Bath.

6.00 – 6.45pm Opening address and presentation of the work and views of our young people

6.45 – 7.00pm Introduction to world cafe and co-creation rather than consultation

7.00 – 7.50pm World cafe followed by wrap-up

This page on the Cultural Forum website provides a lot more information about what a child friendly city is and why it matters for Bath.

Speakers and attendees will include:

David Almond, children’s author and Guest Director of the Bath Children’s Literature Festival
Grainne Powell, CEO and Cecile Maugy, Creative Director, Sticky FIngers, Newry (a Unicef Child Friendly City)
Simon Lenton, Consultant Paediatrician, RUH, passionate about the links between creativity and education with health and well-being
Marian McNeir MBE, Co-Chairman of the Cultural Forum

Establishing Bath as a Child Friendly City was a debate first held by the Cultural Forum in September last year. Notes from that event are here. We also held a ‘What Next’ meeting in February.

Please note that although this event is free it will be very popular and the venue has a capacity limit. So do reserve your place now. BUT, please also note that if you are a Cultural Forum Member but have not renewed your membership for 2014-15 yet you need to do so before coming along. Contact bathculturalforum@gmail.com with any problems. Thank you.
