Child and Parent Friendly Municipality Governance Guide

Online, 9 December 2020

Child and Parent Friendly Municipality Governance Guide Project is carried out in cooperation with Argüden Governance Academy, Turkish Education Volunteers Foundation, Private Sector Volunteers Association and Mother Child Education Foundation, with the contributions of Istanbul Metropolitan Municipality. With the project, we aim to develop a roadmap that will shed light on the work of municipalities to increase the welfare and quality of life of children and parents. To achieve our aforesaid purpose, we will strengthen municipalities structurally in order to be both children and parent friendly; we also create suggestions that will guide them on how to apply this approach to their practices and measure their development. In the further process of the project, we aim to implement the suggestions and evaluate the effect created.

We started our work with a survey that we developed and implemented for all Istanbul district municipalities. With this survey, we asked municipalities to evaluate themselves and their approaches to children and parents in a multifaceted manner, from making decisions, resource management, providing services, and establishing this understanding in their corporate operations, in order to be children and parent friendly.
