Co-creating change with young people

Urban Wilderness Youth Advisory Group July - Youth-Led Central Forest Park, Stoke-on-Trent-50.jpg


We believe that disused public spaces can become sites of positive community action bringing young people and families into the heart of our towns and cities


Empowering young people is central to our work at every level. Adults take on the role of facilitators; challenging, advising and supporting young people to realise their ideas. This ethos builds equal relationships between young and old, and supports young people to develop youth-led community spaces 


Our work challenges negative perceptions of young people living in areas of urban deprivation. We are creating new narratives linking youth led placemaking projects, co-creative festivals and digital stories with wellbeing, belonging and community cohesion
