Urban Design Awards 2013 - SPUD 5X5 - listening to youth voices

SPUD 5x5 is an innovative project to inolve young people in the future of their areas, developed and run for the Partnership for Urban South Hampshire. 

Adults often think young people want a complex range of expensive faciilities, and youth consultation can often be patronising or tokenistic.

SPUD actually involves young people to find out what they really would like.  The results are very different to what most adults expect, with the youths looking for some very practical and essential improvements to ther neighbourhoods and communities.
