Involving young people in the design and care of urban spaces
Explores creative ways to involve children and young people in the design, development and management of public space, with examples from the UK and abroad.
If you are involved – or would like to get involved – in improving or designing public space, this guide is for you. It is aimed at architects and landscape architects, local authority officers, community groups, youth and play workers, regeneration agencies, children and young people. The strong case that it makes for the ongoing involvement of children and young people in the design, development and management of public space also makes it relevant to policy makers, funding bodies and decision makers.
This publication aims to provide an inspiring and practical guide for practitioners. Through the stories of sixteen different projects, it explores creative and constructive ways to involve children and young people in public space and sets out some of the key issues that projects may face. It does not aim to have all the answers, but hopes to provide a useful and inspiring starting point for projects, however big or small.
