Places and Spaces: Environments and children’s well-being

How can countries ensure that all children have healthy environments in which to live, develop and thrive, now and in the future?   

The UNICEF report Places and Spaces: Environments and children’s well-being demonstrates the wide range of influences that the environment has on children’s lives, particularly their physical health, mental well-being and development.  

No country is doing well in all areas, and all need to take action individually, as well as collectively. 

The report is available here to read.
