Policy on Planning for Children and Youth in urbanization environment. Enriching Urban Cityscape for Children and Youth through Scandinavian (Swedish and Danish) child methodology on the old European planning model. In this model, traffic management has the most potential in planning. For the study Dhanmondi, the site planned during the British Empire, was chosen within the capital city Dhaka, Bangladesh where at present the country is one of the most densely populated and has a fast-growing urban infrastructure due to migration from rural areas. Here the child’s needs are neglected. In the report, the effect of car grid policy on children’s physiological and physical development and the results of a new proposed pattern of paths and its impact on the children and growing youth and adults are expressed. The aim is to give a reflection of the Swedish urban youth environment to create a better urban planning situation that plays a role in child
well-being and development. This would also enhance the policy of child well-being for the future developing society in other parts of the country as well. The research takes a journey through the life of the author, her child, and the reflection of social changes. As cities get denser, they lose the quality of private space for children and youths to play and grow. This shows a clear vision of the need for domestic space and sensory stimulation through the urban toolbox. Public transport, pedestrian paths, green corridors and other solutions create spaces for a better society in Bangladesh and its urban child well-being environment.
