BRING IN THE YOUTH!
“Children are the future,” the cliché reminds us, but many times, young people are not considered in public engagement processes. Our May 14 Learning Webinar (11am PDT / 2pm, EDT) is another Victoria Encore: “Youth Shaping Cities”.
Veronika Bylicki of CityHive will reprise this session from the 2018 IAP2 North American Conference, which posits that even though people are becoming increasingly empowered to chart the future course for their cities, youth tend to be overlooked, undervalued, and engaged often simply as an afterthought.
This session critically examines the underpinning theory and systemic barriers that continue to exclude youth participation, resulting in civic disengagement, lack of trust, and significant missed opportunities.
This is another session that attendees told us would make a good webinar for any P2 practitioner. Come and learn about examples, best practices, techniques, and tools. Here is a chance to consider how to re-imagine and redesign youth engagement practices.
