The Youthhub is a very interesting space in the Emirates Tower building. I accidently stumbled across this space on my way to a meeting.

I ended up going back and speaking to someone on the team to learn more and discovered that the whole youthub was #DoneByYouth. Although from the outside it might just look like an average co-working space it had unique features like lockers with charging to a playroom and a studio that could be booked and used for free for anyone.

The chief belief of the UAE leadership and Ministry of Youth is that Young people can design solutions to our greatest challenges. The first challenge was creating a central forum for Youth to connect and share their ideas. I found this space to be exactly that as I met some very interesting people in it.

Best Practice: An accessible free space that is designed for the youth by the youth.
