Definition: A childlife corridor is a safe area of nature connecting children to the school, home, park and community presently separated by human activities (such as roads, development, etc.).
By focusing on the most vulnerable citizens on our streets today, the children, this idea explores rethinking the city to be more conducive with the way children navigate the neighbourhood.
A child-life corridor consists of a series of interventions in the public realm with a combination of traffic calming techniques, cycle lanes, bioswales and renaturing of the urban framework. These will lead to more opportunities for children to be outside, connect with nature on a daily basis and thereby encourage connectivity to the community and activity.
As this will improve the freedom, connectivity and activity of the children, it follows that the health and wellbeing of the community will also improve.
