The City View from Three Feet with Julien Vincelot of Urban95

If you could experience a city from 95cm – the height of a 3-year-old – what would you change? Urban95 asks this bold but simple question of the world’s city leaders, planners, architects, and innovators.

Urban95 is the Bernard van Leer Foundation’s, 30 million euro initiative to make lasting change in the landscapes and opportunities that shape the crucial first five years of children’s lives.

Urban95 is rooted in the belief that when urban neighborhoods work well for pregnant women, babies, toddlers and young children, they also tend to nurture strong communities and economic development.
