Inclusive Spaces: Preventing ‘ruins of regeneration’ through youth-led co-design

Wednesday 19 May, 2021 | 13:00 -14:00 |




In East London, regeneration can have negative consequences for young people – but youth-led design can address them.

Regeneration can negative connotations and consequences for young East Londoners. They rarely feature in industrial strategies, and are often not engaged in regeneration schemes. This has resulted in a feeling of displacement, powerlessness, and isolation.

The Fuse team is a group of young design thinkers, researchers and youth workers from East London. We've come together to explore how design thinking can be leveraged by young people in the local area, and help to make regeneration work better for young East Londoners.

In this event, we’ll share our experiences of Fuse. We show how our design came from a consideration of what 'prosperity' means to young East Londoners, and how it will support young people to thrive in the careers they want. While Fuse focuses on training and work, we also tackle cross-sector issues including systemic oppression and mental ill-health.

We’ll share the design intervention we’ve created to support young East Londoners succeed in careers they want, and explore how our final design will be implemented to make real change.

Fuse is a collaborative project between The Plug, Hackney Quest, Institute for Global Prosperity at UCL and the London Legacy Development Corporation.
