Description

Integrating the voices of youth into city and neighborhood decision-making and scientific research is crucial for developing forward-thinking approaches for creating sustainable cities. In our pilot project, we partner with the high school group East High Cares, empowering them to lead community dialogue around issues of urban agriculture and energy-efficient homes. This paper will share our reasons for partnering with these youth, how working with them shapes our multi-disciplinary methods, and how we will integrate this work with the datadriven urban energy and microclimate simulation tools our research team is developing for sustainable city decision-making.
