IAP2 May Learning Webinar
Tues. May 14, 2019 from 11:00 AM - 12:30 PM Pacific
In an era where citizens are increasingly empowered to shape their cities, youth are still overlooked, undervalued, and often included only as an afterthought. Even when engaged, youth inclusion and participation is often "tokenistic" and "transactional". As a result, youth are the most untapped resource in addressing our cities’ sustainability challenges.
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.
