Cork Healthy Cities partnered in the development of a creative consultation project that invited young people to inform the Cork City Development Plan 2022-2028. In partnership with Cork City Council and UCC’s Centre For Planning Education and Research, the Glucksman devised a creative programme for young people to participate in the consultation phase of the Cork City Development Plan. Primary, second and third level students in Cork city had the opportunity to explore creative approaches to civic life and to express their ideas for a healthier, greener and more playful city.
The 2,500 submissions made by children were then thematically analyzed by staff and students in the Department of Occupational Therapy in UCC and submitted to Cork City Development Plan on behalf of the participating children.
