This site was initiated as a project
CRP 386: International Planning and Participation
a graduate level course taught by Prof. Patricial Wilson
at the University of Texas at Austin, School of Architecture,
Community and Regional Planning Program (UTSOA-CRP)
This online guide is meant as
an introduction to direct youth involvement
and/or leadership in comunity land use planning, policy-making, and community change-making.
Ideally, this site will help normalize the idea of direct youh involvement in community development
in the U. S. and globally, and will encourage more particpatory approaches
to community planning and decision-making, in general.
NOTE: this site is structured similarly to Youth
Participation in Community Planning, by Ramona Mullahey.
Yve Susskind, and Barry Checkoway ,and is meant to expand upon this important work.
