How do we involve young people in the processes that will shape their futures?
Although many regeneration and development projects are supportive of community engagement, very few set out to engage with young residents.
In this roundtable Resolve Collective look at the young community practitioners in London who are doing work that often doesn't appear on our professional radar but is crucial in shaping locales.
Come along and hear the first hand experiences of young people experiencing regeneration and proactively working on projects that positively affect their changing environments.
Featuring contributions from Halima Ali, Writer/Playwright/ZineMaker; Nabiha Qadir, Part 1 RIBA, Community Lead at Play Nice, Exhibitor Consultant at 'Blueprint For All'; and Mohammad Noor, Cert.H.E Architecture, D Lab Trainee, Hob Academy Alumni, and V&A East Young Advisor, the roundtable is aimed at professionals and groups involved in youth engagement and youth-led built environment projects.
Examples of what will be discussed include 'gentrification as experienced by young people', 'intergenerational collaboration', 'young people's view of what architecture can do to positively shape their cities', 'the perception of planning for underrepresented groups'.

The London Society
The Society is for all those who love London. It was founded in 1912 by a group of influential Londoners concerned about the lack of planning for the future of the capital. Early members included architects, planners and engineers alongside politicians and artists. They came from a range of backgrounds and many would go on to shape Britain during the century that followed.
The Society's motto is - Valuing the past; looking to the future!
