|Title||Phenomenal Landscapes: exploring children’s neighbourhood mobility and their experiences within three east London neighbourhoods|
This study explores children’s neighbourhood mobility and their experiences within their neighbourhoods at different times of the year, focussing on their use of the public places and spaces within these both for travel and play. It takes a child-centred approach to the research, working with a small group of children (n=17) from three schools in Hackney, east London to better understand their neighbourhood mobility and exploring how this impacts on their well-being. It uses a mix of mainly qualitative methods, including go-along interviews, mapping exercises, focus group discussions, weekly diaries and photography. The research incorporates whole class surveys and descriptive statistics from these to support the qualitative elements. The study draws from the field of environmental psychology, to better understand how children interact with their environments, and places a strong focus on children’s experiences within their neighbourhoods and the factors that influence their behaviours within them.
