Designing Public Spaces for Young People: Processes, Practices, and Policies for Youth Inclusion

Tuesday, November 10, 2020 at 4:30pm to 5:30pm

Virtual Event

For their growth and development, young people need freedom to enjoy public spaces and develop a sense of belonging—but they are often driven out by restrictive bylaws and hostile designs, says Janet Loebach, assistant professor in the Department of Design and Environment Analysis.

In a virtual Chats in the Stacks talk about the book she co-edited, The Routledge Handbook of Designing Public Spaces for Young People: Processes, Practices, and Policies for Youth Inclusion (Routledge, 2020), Loebach demonstrates the value of youth-inclusive environments and shares ideas about how researchers, design and planning professionals, and community leaders can directly involve the youth in the process of creating public spaces.

A live, moderated question and answer session will follow the talk. The audience is encouraged to submit questions via the Q & A window in the webinar.

This book talk is supported by the Mary A. Morrison Public Education Fund for Mann Library.
