The Newham Youth Map is a digital map of Children’s and Young People’s (CYP) services and organisations within the London Borough of Newham. The map was created for young people by young people from Youth Empowerment, Headstart and Fight for peace with researchers in Connected Environments.
The map was built using the Memory Mapper Toolkit, an open source web application developed by researchers from The Bartlett Centre for Advanced Spatial Analysis for creating interactive maps for heritage, history, tourism, and any context in which rich content might need to be mapped. The map was co-created with young people during the pandemic through a series of online workshops.
