At this day and age, it is highly essential and ever more challenging when it comes to making public spaces accessible to the youth and involving them in decision-making.
To this end, The Routledge Handbook of Designing Public Space for Young People was published last month.
It is an essential and practical guide for all those who want to increase young peoples' access to public spaces, and to include them in design and decision-making processes.
The book contains both evidence and methods which have been contributed by renowned architects, engineers, landscape designers, city planners and social scientists from various parts of the world.
Dr. Zahedus Sadat, author of the 14th chapter of the book, “Fluid Inquiry: Investigating A Re-Imagination Of Youth Friendly Public Spaces In The Era Of Rapidly Changing Technology" is currently using the method he outlined in this book to conduct research on urban transformations in Bangladesh.
According to Sadat, it is of utmost priority to ensure the inclusion of young people in the decision-making and designing of urban spaces as around 30% of Bangladesh's population are between the ages of 10 to 24 years.
He recommends this book for academic researchers, urban planners, architects, NGO workers, and legislators.
