Edited by Sandra Meucci and Michael Schwab
This special issue is about involving children in environmental planning and urban change. Taking children seriously as self-determining social actors has led to increasing acceptance of children’s place in movements to shape the future. The term “environment” is used broadly to mean children’s rights, social welfare policy, how the disappearance of safe public play spaces affects youth crime, and how intensified incarceration policies disrupt the family.
