urban development policy for a changing society
Younger cohorts want changes in the environments they live in. They want to live in interconnected environments that provide fluidity between work, home and recreational spaces. Interconnected environments are conducive to young people building connections and social networks, creating interconnected communities. These interconnected communities provide flexibility in work–life balance, improve accessibility to amenities, build latent support networks and social capital, and provide environmental benefits that are congruent with compact living.
