How can we find meaning in data? How can we use numbers and information to create understanding?

The team at Youthful Cities has created tools to help the public make sense of the data we’ve gathered about and with youth. We know that what we’ve done is just one interpretation. We expect and encourage you to find others by downloading our repository of open data and using it to create new insights.



Chat with 100+ articles and reports published between 2020 and 2022. This experimental tool provides unique insights into youth perspectives.
