Public Spaces for Young People: A Guide to Creative Projects & Positive Strategies.
The presence of young people in public spaces and the types of activities in which they engage have generated considerable debate and discussion in Australia in recent years. This guide provides brief descriptions of a range of public space projects that have been undertaken in Australia. The aim is to outline the key elements of a youth-friendly public space strategy and then describe the basic features of the various grassroots initiatives and specific community-based projects, many of which developed in urban areas. Public space project sites include commercial areas such as shopping centers, publicly owned community spaces, multifunctional spaces such as schools, and outdoor spaces. Part 1 of the guide provides a broad strategic framework for program development that is based on a social development approach to the needs of young people. Part 2 describes eight types of public space projects and initiatives. (Contains 29 references.) (SLD)
