The following report responds to the inquiry call for evidence around young people and the built environment. It provides evidence demonstrating how linking both architectural education and youth engagement in project consultation and delivery processes results in richer projects and brings benefits in terms of young people’s wellbeing.

The case studies discuss two live projects in Newcastle-Upon-Tyne and Nottingham that authors, Kelly MacKinnon and Laura McClorey, have actively shaped. The distinct projects highlight the tangible benefits that can occur when both architectural education and young people are engaged in project consultation and delivery processes. Each of the projects involve local governments and diverse stakeholders working together to consult young people and children throughout project design and delivery processes to ensure their voices are heard.
