“Daisy, vamos ao parque? Crianças e animais na cidade” 
Workshop CriCity

 On the 25th of October, CLAN participated in a workshop organized by the project CriCity, named “Espaços Públicos Infantis: Ilhas de Liberdade na Cidade?”. The CLAN’s contribution was given by Verónica Policarpo with the presentation “Daisy, vamos ao parque? Crianças e animais na cidade”. This presentation aimed to examine the subject of children and animals in the city. The presentation focused on the several kinds of animals that children might find in the city, from their own companion animals, to other “undesirable” animals like rats, insects, pigeons and stray animals.
