Developed by Global Utmaning, written by Elin Andersdotter Fabre, Emelie Anneroth and Caroline Wrangsten

Tool type

Process Step

This catalogue contains new methods and tools for local urban development and planning that promote sustainable urban public spaces, that are applied in Swedish low-income areas, or in informal urban settlements in the global south. This publication shows that a feminist approach to urban livability is important in understanding the diversity of perspectives on livability in a public space, and that these perspectives matter for how we understand planning principles. In Urban Girls Catalogue they mapped good examples, stories and lessons learned form multi-stakeholders globally, highlighted ongoing initiatives and payed attention to implementing the SDGs at a local level with feminist urban planning techniques as core tools. Their motto is: cities planned for and by girls work for everyone.
