More and more people are living in cities. To encourage families to invest in urban domestic life, an infrastructure of attractive, traffic-protected routes is required to connect urban neighborhoods to meaningful destinations. The 2012 symposium focused on urban neighborhood design for children and families and the foundation it provides for health, well-being, and resource conservation in the 21st century.
