Child-Friendly Cities

The world’s leading social welfare organization came to us to create a web-based searchable resource to help make cities across the globe more child-friendly.

In 2013, UNICEF spearheaded a research initiative to help improve the living conditions of children around the world. They created a set of self-assessment tools for local authorities and communities, which resulted in the Child-Friendly Cities initiative. They needed a website to help them disseminate this information to member cities, and Big Yellow Taxi took on the challenge.

As the initiative caught on in more cities and countries, UNICEF headquarters opened their research and tools to the public and once again turned to us. We created a redesigned site that made it more consumer-facing, appealing to government agencies, charities, parents,children, volunteers, and communities.

Today, we continue to maintain the site and help UNICEF advocate for children’s rights and inspire change across the globe.



UNICEF, also known as the United Nations Children’s Fund, is a United Nations agency responsible for providing humanitarian and developmental aid worldwide. The agency is among the most widespread and recognizable social welfare organizations globally, in 192 countries and territories. UNICEF works with partners worldwide to promote policies and expand access to services that protect all children.
