Her City GuideA Guide for Cities to Sustainable and Inclusive Urban Planning and Design together with Girls.
Involving girls in urban development will make the city better for everyone. Girls plan and design with diversity and different needs in mind. Participatory processes are key for planning a city that works for everyone. If we let citizens that are rarely heard be the experts, our cities and communities will become more inclusive, equal and sustainable. Her City supports urban development from a girl’s perspective. We guide urban actors to implement projects through a step-by-step methodology providing an open and digitally accessible platform for all. We facilitate an ongoing dialogue between professionals and citizens. Her City is a joint urban development initiative by UN-Habitat (the United Nations Human Settlements Programme) and the independent think tank Global Utmaning (Global Challenge). It is financed by the Swedish Innovation Agency (Vinnova) with contributions from our partners Block by Block Foundation, White Architects, Swedish Union of Tenants and MethodKit.
