Fully Fest Logan Active Youth Events Pilot
Logan City Council
A proactive approach to improving the lives of young people in Logan through inclusive public space activation and programming
The consultation, research and space assessments undertaken with young people, service providers, Councillors, Council officers and other key stakeholders in development of the Logan Active Youth Space Strategy revealed an overwhelmingly strong need to activate youth spaces.
Activation ensures spaces are made attractive to a wide range of young people and facilitates increases in physical activity participation within the space. This activation approach, based on an inclusive and diverse events model, spaces, partnerships and high level involvement from young people, was very popular with local leaders who immediately showed support for the strategy.
