This is a former Childwatch Project. This Unesco-sponsered project still exists and was the first major international effort to document the quality of life of urban children in minority and majority Worlds. The Growing Up in Cities project was a replication of the original study by urban planner Kevin Lynch in 1977. The goal of the project was to document some of the human costs and benefits of economic development by showing how the child’s use and perception of the resulting microenvironment affect his or her life and personal development.
