In the upcoming decades, Flanders has to face a number of challenges in its public space and planning policy. A confluence of demographic and social tendencies - including the increase of motorised traffic, the criminalisation of 'nuisance'... - put free movement in public space under pressure. As co-users and co-owners of a shared public space, children and young people are particularly affected. The place of children and young people in public space, as well as their interaction with other users of this space, is one of the themes KeKi critically adresses in its thematic research. The relationship between the rights of children and the rights of adults is a key point here (see also our vision statement).
