ReThink Urban Spaces
Thai-European Youth Forum on Urban Community Development
The EU funded project between the European Union Delegation Thailand, the Goethe-Institut Thailand, Thai Civic Education Foundation and Child and Youth Media Foundation aims to sustainably facilitate a youth-led approach in rethinking urban spaces in Thailand to create inclusive cities, which allow for the participation of all stakeholders in matters that affect their present and future well-being.
Our youth-led programme during the project term includes various kind of activities. From Roundtable Discussions to an Open Call for Ideathons in five cities, followed by three Incubation Workshops, with a study trip in Europe in between. After developing ideas for projects in five participating cities in Thailand, young urbanists will present the outcomes at the ReThink Urban Spaces Youth Festival. A concluding Policy Forum will open the opportunity for a sustained effort to promote youth participation in policy making in urban development issues.
RTUS will be working with young urbanists in five cities in five regions of Thailand: Chiang Mai in the North, Khon Kaen in the Northeast, Kanchanaburi in the West, Hat Yai in the South and Bangkok in the CentreMore Information
Knowledge and experiences gained, and lessons learned during the project with various kind of activities and stakeholders, will be collected and curated for public use.More information
