How kids can help design cities | Mara Mintzer | TED 2018

they'll inherit will look like? Urban planner Mara Mintzer shares what
happened when she and her team asked kids to help design a park in
Boulder, Colorado -- and how it revealed an important blind spot in how
we construct the built environment. "If we aren't including children in
our planning, who else aren't we including?" Mintzer asks.
