Globalisation and youth culture

In this chapter we will: ● explore how the lives of children and youth are influenced by and respond to

the intersection of global-local networks in the city ● discuss the effects of commercialisation on the organisation and experience of

leisure ● examine the extent to which urban youth subcultures challenge adult domi-

nance in public space and enable creative engagements with the city’s materials and landscapes.
