As part of the Government of India’s ‘Azadi ka Amrit Mahotsav’ initiative, Northeast capital cities – Tripura’s Agartala and Nagaland’s Kohima – are participating in the ‘75 Hours: Placemaking Marathon’.
Agartala is working on a Toddler play area at Pragati Park, a slow treat that ensures safety for young children and their caregivers at the park and improving access to Pragati Padah Anganwadi and Pragati School.
Kohima, on the other hand, is working on creating a toddler zone (Highland Park), a dedicated toddler & caregiver zone at MT Garage Anganwadi Premise, a child-friendly bus stop for child-friendly interventions from New NST to Razhii Point Street and reclaiming streets and playing pockets for toddlers at Govt. Middle School and Forest Colony Street.
About the Nurturing Neighbourhoods Challenge
The Nurturing Neighbourhoods Challenge is a 3-year initiative aimed at supporting early childhood-friendly neighbourhoods hosted by the Smart Cities Mission, Ministry of Housing and Urban Affairs, in collaboration with the Bernard van Leer Foundation (BvLF) and technical partner WRI India.
The Challenge aims to enhance the health and wellbeing of infants, toddlers, and their caregivers. Urban design and city planning play a crucial role in shaping the early years of a child’s life – the period most vital for a child’s long-term health and development. Adopting an early childhood lens can help city leaders, policy makers and urban practitioners envision safe, inclusive and resilient cities for all.
