School module "Urbanistics"

The Urbanism School module is an educational project on urban planning for children, aimed at empowerment of young people as participants in decision-making process in the city. The project took place from September 19 to November 14, 2016, based on the Kharkiv Sanatorium and Educational Complex №13.

The purpose of the project is to provide children and young people with an understanding of the basic principles of city functioning, existing problems and different ways of their solution, thus raising a new generation of inhabitants who understand their right to the urban environment and know how to implement it. In addition, the project included possibility for pupils to participate in conducting sociological research among young people, which provided an opportunity to analyze the needs and general children’s attitudes to urban space and the processes taking place in it.

Organizers: NGO Urban Forms Center, CEDOS Analytical Center and Mistosite Internet Magazine with the support of Charles Stewart Mott Foundation and with the assistance of the Department of Science and Education of the Kharkiv Regional State Administration.
