Newham Youth Map
Created by young people for young people, differing from google maps with it being more targeted towards young people, giving first-hand accounts of experiences as told by young people themselves. A map designed for any young person wishing to find out more about the activities available to them in the borough, from attending a youth centre, playing basketball in the park, participating in the creative arts and much more.
This was a participation project where 6 young people, a mixture of Youth Empowerment, Headstart and Fight for Peace, have come together to learn about mapping, how to use this new piece of software and how to develop it so it can be widely used by young people across the borough. The development process of this software and its functionality has been incredibly exciting, young people with accessibility needs have pointed out key features that have directly affected the functionality of the map in a positive way, this, aiming to be something any young person regardless of needs can access.
