Child in the City
The 6th edition of the Child in the City Conference will be held on 26-28 September 2012 in the city of Zagreb. Zagreb has been the first city in Croatia to implement a strategy for children based on modern scientific achievements and national and international laws and documents. Zagreb has implemented several child friendly projects and programmes. Part of the systematic policy of the city is to improve the care of children who have been exposed to the consequences of the war. Zagreb has proclaimed itself a ‘child friendly city’. Consequently, Zagreb is a logical host for the 6th edition of the Child in the City conference, whose objective it is to encourage cities to become more child friendly. The city of Zagreb follows five European cities that were former hosts of this bi-annual conference. In September of this year Zagreb and the initiators of this conference - the Child in the City Foundation and the European Network Child Friendly Cities – will discuss themes and policies and share best practices with conference delegates from all over Europe.
