Seen And Heard

A new campaign to change the face of public space – for and by young people

Young adults rarely get a say in the design of London’s public spaces. Seen and Heard is a new campaign that aims to change things for the better, giving young people a voice in the design and management of public space in their communities.

Seen and Heard emerged from a 2019 project initiated by members of the Blueprint Collective, a network of young people brought together to help shape the Brent 2020 programme, along with other young adults from the borough. The project explored urban public spaces in Brent, which are too often restrictive and dangerous – just as they are across London.

Now, 19 young people from Brent have teamed up with urban design researchers at the London School of Economics to create the Blueprint Charter, a new manifesto for public spaces, and the Seen and Heard petition. If you believe young people deserve better public spaces, please sign it – and help to make a positive change in our borough and our city.
