How kids can help design cities | Mara Mintzer

But kids make up a quarter of the population, so shouldn't they have a say in what the world they'll inherit will look like?

Urban planner Mara Mintzer shares what happened when she and her team asked kids to help design a park in Boulder, Colorado -- and how it revealed an important blind spot in how we construct the built environment.

"If we aren't including children in our planning, who else aren't we including?" Mintzer asks.
