This resource provides a series of reflexive prompts and practical examples for adult decision-makers doing co-design with children. Adult decision-makers may include practitioners, policy-makers, and researchers.

The prompts and examples are arranged into three sections: 1) Empowering children within co-design, 2) Being intentional about children’s influence, and 3) Curating who is involved.

The checklist was developed based on insights from research in Aotearoa New Zealand, which sought to understand how children’s (aged 5-13 years) ideas for health-promoting local environments are brought to life through co-design.
