Many young people show growing concern about the climate crisis and are determined to take action and make their voices heard. Both local governments and youth organizations want to involve young people in sustainability projects, by having them actively participate in the (re)design of public spaces. But how do you approach this concretely if you are a youth organization, city or municipality?

These evidence-based arguments can help to raise the profile of sport and exercise in public space, as well as linking them with other policy domains.

What environmental factors have an impact on healthy ageing? In this project, we seek to develop a screening and monitoring tool to map the age-friendliness of cities.

Gender-inclusive spaces thrive
The name of the G.I.R.L! project – from the Dutch ‘gender inclusieve ruimte leeft’, or ‘gender-inclusive space is alive’ – illustrates our objective perfectly: we want to make the concept of inclusive space come alive and bring attention to the issues of teenage girls. We look at whether urban sports can empower girls to claim their place in public spaces.

Although urban sport is becoming increasingly popular among young people, finding suitable spaces to practise can be a challenge. This is where the Urban Sports Kickstart Guide comes into play! The tool provides tools for identifying spaces, useful tips for setting them up, and inspiring examples from home and abroad.

Youth engagement and environment tool
Bringing youth together to think about public space is the ultimate aim of the YET project. We let young people’s creativity run wild!
