Children Digital

Data Collection


This project explores new forms of promoting child engagement in the reflection and design of urban space in Maputo.


In Mozambique, more than half the population are children. Urbanisation in the country creates both a challenge and an opportunity to accommodate children’s needs and influence their rights. This project uses data collection technologies to leverage their knowledge and opinions through an active participatory process. The objective is to ensure their voice is heard, thus influencing the decision-making process.
