Children are a social group that are excluded from decision making and participation processes in the city. They are mostly considered either incapable to think reasonably or naive to participate in large scale processes. On the other hand, they are expected to be reasonable citizens for the future to create better cities and communities. Between these controversies, this thesis suggests a way, which is presenting the concept of right to the city to children through participatory methods. The aim of the thesis is to search the methods of increasing an awareness of right to the city, participation, social consciousness, responsibility and rights in children. Regarding the aim, a workshop series is conducted with a children group under child development specialist's supervision in a local non-governmental organization (NGO) in Çiğli district of İzmir. The NGO constitutes a media to reach children and provide a participatory ground for the presentation of these concepts. The case study reveals that continuous workshops make a progress in knowledge of right to the city, in children's participation skills and interest in taking responsibility about the city. It is understood that when they are given an information about their right to the city and a chance to participate, they will produce their own ideas to tell about their city. Keywords: children, right to the city, children's participation, children's rights, social consciousness, responsibility.
