Watch Parlour LAB 14 – Places of opportunity: designing with and for young people with Penelope Carroll, Karen Witten and Debra Cushing. 

You can purchase access to the CPD questions below.

Children and young people are fellow citizens, so how do we ensure they are welcome, included and safe in our built and urban environments? How are can we ensure their voices are heard and their experiences taken into consideration during design processes?  What are the implications when they are excluded? Our speakers this session all bring considerable expertise and knowledge to these questions.

Watch Penelope Carroll, Karen Witten and Debra Cushing as they discuss designing with and for young people with conveners Kali Marnane and Rebecca McLaughlan.

For further resources on this topic, download Tips for Designers and the paper Children are citizens too by Penelope Carroll, Karen Witten and Claire Stewart. Book recommendations from Debra Cushing include Creating Better Cities with Children and Youth by David Driscoll and Placemaking with Children and Youth: Participatory Practices for Planning Sustainable Communities by Victoria Derr, Louise Chawla and Mara Mintzer. 

This session is a companion to Parlour LAB 13, which looked at design spaces of learning for young people.
