ReThink Urban Spaces

The EU-funded project between the Goethe-Institut, the Thai Civic Education Foundation and the Child and Youth Media Foundation facilitated a youth-led approach in rethinking urban spaces in Thailand from 2021 to 2023 to create more inclusive cities, which allow for the participation of young people as stakeholders in urban design, planning and development.
