Foreword
Over the past decade, agencies and governments across the world have begunto realize the value – and necessity – o engaging youth as partners and leadersin the development o cities and towns. As more and more o the issues ohuman development become urban issues, and ever-greater proportions o citypopulations are youth, the crucial intersection between empowering youth andactualizing our goals or sustainable urban development becomes clear. Just asin the 20
th
century, the vast majority o the worlds’ nations recognized that theinclusion and ull empowerment o women was key to success, in the 21
st
centurywe have begun to make similar strides towards the recognition o youth as ullstakeholders in our shared uture.This series o training manuals was developed by UN-HABITAT in partnership withseveral international NGOs. The titles in this set o guidebooks are intended oruse in Urban Youth Centres, oering resources or development partners andpractitioners grappling with the issues o youth in urban spaces today. Each othe manuals builds on and interaces with the other volumes in the series, andtogether the series oers a lexible and locally-adaptable roadmap to ensure thatyouth can be eectively engaged and empowered to make positive changes intheir own lives and in their communities.These manuals have been ground-tested with youth, partner organizationrepresentatives and municipal sta rom One Stop Youth Resource Centres inKenya, Tanzania, Uganda and Rwanda. To date, we have seen an overwhelmingresponse and desire by municipalities in countries across Arica and beyond oraccess to these training resources, relecting the great need or sae urban spacesin which youth and local authorities can cooperatively interact and address sharedconcerns. It is our hope that with this series’ wide distribution to municipalpartners, we will see the expansion and evolution o the One Stop and We Are theFuture Urban Youth Centre models across the developing world. This series canalso be adapted at the national level by Ministries concerned with Youth issues.As with any publication designed or use in multiple locations in the ield oyouth-led development, this series is expected to expand and be revised andupdated regularly. To those beneiciaries o this irst edition, we invite yourcontributions to the ongoing learning and eedback process that is the hallmark osuccessul participatory development.I would like to extend thanks on behal o UN-HABITAT to our developmentpartners who have made resources available. To our municipal and civil societypartners, and especially to the youth o today’s cities, we entreat you toimplement the learning contained in this series, to work together to create newopportunities or youth as leaders o today, and to continue your shared eorts tobring about lasting and meaningul change in your communities.Dr. Joan ClosExecutive Director, UN-HABITAT
