Childhood Outdoors: Toward a Social Ecology of the Landscape

Authors: Moore, Robin; & Young, Donald.

In the urban environment, the creation of childhood places cannot be left to chance or the vagaries of pressure groups; they must be deliberately fostered by planning, design, and management to satisfy basic human needs. Our purpose therefore is to present existing empirical findings, within a behavior-environment ecological framework, to support more rational decision-making.
