Child-friendly Towns and Villages


What did we do

The Office of the Commissioner for Children in Malta is currently conducting a research study on child-friendly towns and villages. the project consists of a research study which will be carried out amongst children, parents/guardians and key stakeholders. The second part of the project will consist of a practical element in which a town in Malta has been identified and through child participation (focus groups and walk about workshops) an area will be identified and made more child-friendly.
