Urban Environmental Education Review
Cornell University Press
• Positive youth development is an assets-based approach for cultivating competencies essential to personal well-being.
• When environmental education enables children and youths to contribute to improving urban environments, it can not only increase cities' sustainability and resilience but also foster young people's personal growth.
• Participatory action research, peer education, and youth civic engagement are three educational approaches that can lead to positive change for both urban environments and youths living within them.
