Are you a parent? Have you lived in a city? Help CityLab with a new reporting project.
Welcome to Room to Grow, our new series on raising small children in cities.

For the rest of the year, we’ll be bringing you stories from around the globe on local issues impacting early childhood development, from how Albania’s capital city reclaimed space for playgrounds, to a town in Spain that implemented child-friendly policies to attract young families, to how South Korea is encouraging a higher birth rate. More from the Middle East and Africa in the weeks and months to come.

We’ll be speaking with experts, yes, but we also want to hear from you. If you're a parent with opinions about how your region supports young kids and their caregivers, help inform our reporting by taking a few moments to complete the survey below. —Molly McCluskey, editor
