In spite of the fact that children do not have the experience to be deeply involved in big-scale town planning, I think it would be beneficial for them to have a certain level of involvement. Firstly, children tend to be creative and inclined to think outside the box, which may lead to innovative solutions of how to improve the town. Furthermore, by involving children in the planning process, you create a sense of ownership over the town, which may lead to better care of the public spaces in the town. In addition, children are more likely to be open to new ideas and technologies, which could benefit the town’s overall advancement. However, it should be noted that children should not be in charge of decisions, as their views are likely to be childish and impractical in some cases. Therefore, I think children should be involved in town planning to some degree in order to benefit from their capacity for new ideas and enthusiasm, as long as their decisions are moderated by adults.
