Urban Health: Young Voices
The Urban Thinkers Campus (UTC) is an initiative of the World Urban Campaign driven by UN-Habitat to provide an open space for critical exchange between urban researchers, professionals, and decision-makers who believe that urbanisation is an opportunity and can lead to positive urban transformations.
For that, on October 25th, World Vision International, Plan International, Slum Dwellers International, UNICEF, Dreamtown (all members of and the Global Alliance Cities4Children) facilitated an intergenerational dialogue on children and youth-led solutions to urban health challenges and a deep dive into specific challenges, opportunities and solutions to securing and promoting urban health and well-being for children and young people in marginalised and poor urban areas.
To prepare for that dialogue, a small survey was developed and disseminated to gather as much input from children and youth in different cities on the topic of challenges to health in their cities. These are the results.
