Description
Our children will build the future. It is important to prepare them for this. Making our children aware of the built environment, architecture, urbanism and sustainable development is a top priority. Fostering their knowledge in these fields will ensure their development as responsible citizens, able to make their voices heard and influence the political, economic and social strategies that will shape their cities and their environment. It is when they are young, open-minded and full of imagination that it is necessary and easy to give them these tools. They will use them later to find the best balance between their dreams, the desire for an ideal living space and an achievable one in the real world. The UIA Architecture & Children Work Programme Golden Cubes Awards will celebrate those who prepare our children and young people for this task. The Awards will also help to stimulate new projects that share this objective. Imagining the cities of the future is an urgent and vital challenge. Educating those who will create them is an issue we should address now.
