"As children make the future of cities, they should also be given special attention in urban areas; child friendly cities should be physically a good place for children to commute as well as being accessible regarding the urban amenities. Urban programs should be aimed at enhancing children's learning," the mayor of Yazd emphasized.

"Yazd has good cultural features that must be passed on to children through education and storytelling so that they can transmit Yazd's cultural heritage to the city," he emphasized.

"In order to be able to execute this project in Yazd, we are monitoring the realization of standards," he continued.
