The UN Women UK’s charity launched a campaign to enhance our public spaces in 2020, after they identified, that over 70% of women have experienced sexual harassment in public (physical and online) spaces. Everyone working within the development industry has a duty to enhance the security of our urban environments. The space we give over to movement and play must make everyone feel welcome, no matter what age or gender, religion or capability.
Here we bring together a group of individuals at the forefront of this debate to understand more about the emerging research, resources and approaches being taken in this sphere, to design better and make change happen.
