Abstract [en]

Urban densification is the current planning ideal today with arguments of social, economic

and ecological sustainability. However, this way of exploiting the urban area seem to result

in a decrease of the amount of open space and green area available for children. By

examining the accessible open space in primary schools in Malmö, this study has tried to

determine whether one can find geographic or socioeconomic patterns connected to this

asset. The study has been carried out with the help of GIS after a literature review of

necessary theory and legislation had been done. The outcome shows that schools in some

districts, primarily the area surrounding the city center, are not as good as the others to

provide for the child’s need for open space. Six of the schools don’t even manage to meet

the required square meter (m2) of open space stipulated by the municipality of Malmö,

Malmö Stad. This result describes an uneven distribution of open space depending on the

child's geography. An unfair development from the child’s perspective, which in turn

brings numerous negative effects both physical and psychological for their childhood.
