NGOs, activists, educationalists, social workers, media, and children from various cities were also present.

These experts shared good practices and innovations from India and around the world and deliberated on strategies and approaches to develop smart child-friendly cities in the country. These cities by their very nature and inclusive approach will also be responsive to the needs of women and the aged.
