The built environment has a significant impact on children and young people’s development, their quality of life and their experience and enjoyment
of the world. Schools, houses, shops, walkways, railways, parks, recreational and community centres are all part of our built environment.

Western Australia’s unique geographic and demographic landscape combined with our State’s fast-paced growth and development means there are opportunities to shape and enhance the built environment and, in doing so, promote the wellbeing of children and young people in urban, regional and remote areas.
