Imagining a ‘Child Friendly’ Lincoln

ESRC Festival of Social Science Family Fun Day!!

We are delighted to announce that the ESRC have funded us to launch the Children of Lincoln project. On Saturday 4th November 2017, between 10am -4pm, we invite you to join us for an interactive day of free activities for families, children and young people of all ages, as we launch our children’s rights initiative for Lincoln, and strive to be recognised as a UNICEF Child-Friendly City.

Follow the treasure hunt to find us and claim a tasty treat, then take part in our bonfire night-themed activities, including arts and crafts, technology, games and sports. You can even try to score a goal with Lincoln City FC. More importantly, we also need you to help us to imagine what a ‘child-friendly’ Lincoln city might look like, and to shape the future of the project. Share your thoughts on what young people living in Lincoln need to thrive and succeed, and what obstacles or challenges they face.

Staff and student researchers from the University of Lincoln are on hand to help you find out more about children’s rights granted under the United Nations Convention on the Rights of the Child, and what we already know about children’s rights in Lincoln.

Let’s all celebrate children’s rights to play, leisure time, and to experience culture by offering an exciting day for young people of all ages.

If you’re registered with the Lincolnshire Children’s University you can have your passport stamped for attending this event.

Refreshments are provided throughout the day, including a lunchtime buffet.
