"C" of "C my city!" comes from the concept's initial capitals,
"Children Create City Culture", and it also means "See".
How do children and young people perceive our built environment?
The virtual architectural map allows children and youngsters
to tell us about it.
"C my city!" presents the child's and young person's view of buildings and other features of the built environment that they consider important. "C my city!" also showcases children's ideas
about the cityscape of the future.
Children and youngsters tell us about their own home cities using words, pictures, animation and videos. "C my city!" encourages children to explore the built environment, to examine and learn
and to communicate their observations to others.
