This is wonderful! Children are citizens! I have to link some work you might like to see that is similar. Richmond, Virginia is offering a way for the community to design their city. Here is a video from a meeting with children. https://youtu.be/qYra0a5T4Ok. Also, there was a Children as Citizens project from DC public schools where young children wrote a guidebook to their city. https://youtu.be/xNqzyx0Gi2g In addition, when I was a teacher, Michigan State University worked with my 4 year old classroom to plan a "Beaver Lodge Playhouse" for Harris Nature Center that was amazing. Keep sharing projects for us all to learn from! Thank you.
