Launch webinar of Her City toolbox

On the occasion of International Women’s Day, we are pleased to invite you to the launch webinar of Her City toolbox, an open source digital platform that guides urban actors and decision-makers in strengthening girls’ and young women’s participation in urban planning and design processes

About Her City

Involving girls in urban development will make the city better for everyone. 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.

The purpose of Her City is to make methods and tools available to urban actors and cities globally. We support cities to scale up and mainstream girls’ participation as a part of their long-term strategies to build sustainable cities and societies. The digital toolbox guides urban actors to implement projects through a step-by-step methodology that facilitates the 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.
