UN-Habitat Youth Unit team also launched the early results of its Global State of Urban Youth Report (GSUYR) 2015/16. GSUYR 2015/16’s theme tackled the issue of rising urban inequalities. “Urban Equity and Youth Development” was the topic.
With hashtag #GSUYR, WUYM’s youth participants in Surabaya and other cities joined in. They conducted focus group discussions (FGD’s) to deepen the understanding of economic, political, social and cultural and environmental inequity issues in their own cities. As a result, the research team received much-needed input from the youth. The team is looking forward to launching the GSUYR 2015/16 report officially at Habitat III in Quito, Ecuador.
