In January 2019 we are kicking off our project in Sierra Leone where we are developing in partnership with the University of Canberra, Health Research Institute, and Dreamtown a research protocol that measures subjective wellbeing in young people. This project aims to improve wellbeing and resilience of youth in informal settlements in three major cities across the Sierra Leone by dreaming their public spaces for a healthier community.
Urban Synergies Group in collaboration with Dreamtown and CISU is holding a workshop in Copenhagen, Denmark, on the 13th December 2018 entitled „Do you love your city? Rethinking sustainable urban development and public space.“ Contact us or our partners at Dreamtown for further information.
Urban Synergies Group has been awarded with a commendation from the Planning Institute of Australia in the category „Public Engagement and Community Planning“ for our Urban Thinkers Campus „Shaping Spaces for GenZ“. We would like to express gratitude to all stakeholders involved that the community members that are committed to create a healthy future for the next generation.
