What is Youth, Democracy and Sustainable Citizenship about?
Youth, Democracy and Sustainable Citizenship: Reimagining the City and Empowering Young People through Engagement with Policy-Makers is a research pilot project funded by the British Academy, and the Department for Business, Energy and Industrial Strategy, and framed around the theme of ‘What is a good city?
We are researchers from Lancaster University, Royal Holloway University London and University of Lincoln working together with young adults and Lancaster City Council. The project explores novel methods to build bridges between Councils, city authorities, and young people on environmental policies, to co-design policies that will be more effective (financial and environmentally) in the longer-term. Our pilot combines two case studies, one in London working with the Greater London Authority (GLA), and another one in Lancaster collaborating with Lancaster City Council (LCC). Looking to the future, we are interested in exploring with you the future of cities. The placemaking workshops will be run by Dr Mirian Calvo
