We enable sustainable
and inclusive cities
together with girls.
If we let citizens traditionally without a voice be the experts, our cities and communities will become more inclusive, equal and sustainable.
Engage her, give her a voice,
and the opportunity to
influence her environment.
About Her City
The tables are turned
Involving girls in urban development will make the city better for everyone. Girls plan and design with diversity and different needs in mind. Participatory processes are key for planning a city that works for everyone. If we let citizens that are rarely heard be the experts, our cities and communities will become more inclusive, equal and sustainable.
The purpose of this initiative is to make methods and tools available to urban actors and cities globally. We support cities to scale up and mainstream girls’ participation in planning as a part of their long-term strategies to build sustainable cities and societies.
A toolbox with 9 flexible building blocks
Her City supports urban development from a girl’s perspective. We guide urban actors to implement projects through a step-by-step methodology providing an open and digitally accessible platform for all. We facilitate an ongoing dialogue between professionals and citizens.
