LI Webinar: Environments without bias: Designing Gender Neutral Spaces


Studies have shown that teenage girls are significantly less active than teenage boys, with only 10% of girls aged 13-16 meeting the recommended daily guidelines of 60 minutes of physical activity per day (Sport England, 2018).

In addition to this, a new study into how teenage girls use parks and green spaces for recreation has found twice as many girls as boys feel unsafe exercising in their local park (49% compared to 26%) (Yorkshire Sport 2022).

So what can we do to make parks more welcoming to all? In this webinar join Rosie Mayer, Creative Lead and Jennifer Tindsley, Landscape Architect as they discuss the processes and design interventions Jupiter Play are adopting to make parks more welcoming.


Learning outcomes for this webinar include:

  • The Data Gap: The importance of research
  • Understanding the issues faced by teenage girls when using outdoor spaces
  • What does better design look like?
  • What are the priorities and added value
