The advice, due in around a fortnight, looks at using children and young adults in design and management of public spaces. A series of guidelines will ask why, how and when should you involve youngsters.
Author Louisa Neuberger of the Glasshouse, a national education service for local groups, said using children “instilled life-long enthusiasm for public space”.
The guide, produced with CABE Education, includes examples of public spaces, some in the making and some complete.
These include a shelter designed by a young people, youth worker Sharon Robinson and artist Pete Codling at Freemantle Lake Park in Southampton.
Kids formed a youth forum and for 18 months immersed themselves in consultation, planning and design.
