The MyHood project will deliver four main outputs:

METHODOLOGY FOR ENGAGING YOUTH IN DESIGNING A SUSTAINABLE AND GREENER CITY

Connecting the knowledge and current strategies about climate change adaption in our living environments with appropriate pedagogical methods and tools so that the target group (youth) will better understand the topic and at the same time engage interactively with their environment directly. Furthermore, the methodology will select the appropriate tools of engaging young people into the decision-making process connected with urban planning based on the knowledge and findings on childrens and youths physical, cognitive and mental development stages

ENVIRONMENTAL CONTENT

A specific educational material together with participatory tools for active engagement. It is designed either to be downloadable as pdf on the project website or to be used as the content source for the MyHood Interactive Online Tool. It is designed so, because not all the schools or organisations are equipped with devices suitable for the use of MyHood Interactive Online Tool. The Environmental Content will be structured into sections and can be used for learning about sustainable urban environment etc., and also as the participatory tools to get to know, understand and evaluate certain public space.

INTERACTIVE ONLINE TOOL

This interactive tool will provide the youth users with interactive learning material (about the climate change and sustainable city environment) that will pop-up while using this tool to evaluate certain area or a future urban development project. The evaluation will be send to the decision makers (the urban planners) to gain the valuable data from a group of citizens that is currently missing.

USER GUIDE FOR EDUCATORS AND MUNICIPALITIES

MyHood User Guide will be produced to complement the MyHood Interactive Online Tool for the users to be able to use it independently. Based on the methodology it will provide instructions on how to use the online tool, to set up a project and to produce useful results for urban planning projects.
