The thesis title asks if there is room for children to participate in matters concerning the built environment. The concept "room" in the title, has three different meanings; the physical room referring to the public place in the local neighborhood, the administrative room and the political room. The thesis builds on reflection on the author's communicative practice. The pilot project about "Small ugly places" constitutes most of the empirical part of the thesis. The project was about participation, children and the urban environment and was put into effect in five inner city primary schools in Oslo.
