Safe and Empowering Places for Girls and Women
Realising the restrictions girls and women face in relation to access to public space and participation in decision-making, in line with our inclusive design focus we are undertaking projects that focus extra attention on girl impact.
Throughout 2018, we will be working with SPRING around the concept of safe and empowering urban environments for girls that they can use without fear or intimidation. We will be reviewing and adding on to our design processes with a specific view to girl impact, and look into the creation of safe/empowering:
– Playgrounds for girls
– Sport & exercise areas for girls and young women
– Places for socialising
– WASH areas
– Train and bus stops.
