How to Engage Young People in Regeneration

Who is it for?
Local Authorities, Neighbourhood Forums, Community Groups, Housing Associations; may also be of interest to Developers and Consultants.

What is it?
Young people are the future residents, workers and developers of our cities. Their opinion on design proposals is often key to the success or failure of a regeneration project.

Our Engaging Young People in Regeneration Workshop will equip you with a variety of ways to engage young people from 8-21 in the design of places and spaces.

In this workshop we draw on our wealth of youth engagement experience through the My City Too! programme to illustrate the successful methods of engaging young people in urban design.

What does it deliver?
Equipped with the tools and techniques from the workshop you will have a better understanding of how to meaningfully engage young people in the design of urban buildings and spaces.
