Marina de Valencia Living Lab Activation project
Working with the Marina de Valencia in Spain, the Intergener8 team are designing and delivering a Living Lab process, bringing diverse stakeholders together in the co-research and co-design of initiatives that drive the urban, economic and cultural transformation of Valencia.
State of the World's Children Consultation
UNICEF State of the World's Children report presents an annual examination of a key issue affecting young people. In 2017, the report focused on young people and digital technologies. Using the RErights.org online consultation platform, young people from around the world shared their insights and experiences about their rights in the digital age. These insights formed the basis of the State of the World's Children report and highlight the need to minimize the risks while maximizing access to the benefits of digital technology.
Smart Skilled Hired AND Diverse
In partnership with Navitas English, we are exploring the training and work experiences and aspirations for young people who have recently arrived, have refugee or refugee-like experiences. This will form the basis of the co-design of an employment program for young people in Western Sydney.
Wellbeing, Health and Youth (WH&Y)
From 2018 – 2022, our team will participate in the newly funded Centre of Research Excellence in Adolescent Health (CRE). In collaboration with Intergener8 Living Lab, this research will bring together diverse young people, families, health consumers, researchers, policy makers and other community members to investigate the conditions, ethics and modalities of youth-engaged health research. Our aim is to directly inform priorities and practices in health research and address the challenges of embedding young people’s experiences in health research, policy and service design in the digital society.
Together with young people, we’re building a different map of the city, an emotional map, and in doing so contributing to conversations about the future planning and design of cities. Because memories and experiences, emotions and aspirations–the invisible aspects of how places are lived–are as important as the visible aspects when it comes to understanding and imagining the city in new ways.
