Ennovent was the India management partner for phase 1 of the Healthy Cities for Adolescents (HCA) program, supported by Fondation Botnar and led by the International Society for Urban Health (ISUH) globally. The program aims to enhance the health and well-being of young people in secondary cities through multi-stakeholder, community-centered programs.
Ennovent co-designed and managed demonstrator projects in India through implementing organisations selected jointly with ISUH and Fondation Botnar. Local, youth-driven solutions to strengthen local governance and create healthy, vibrant, and safe areas for young people were tested in Jaipur (Rajasthan) and Bhubaneswar (Odisha) with adolescents. Simultaneously, discussions were held with state and national stakeholders to engage them in developing a shared vision for healthy cities for adolescents.
Youth well-being was advanced through projects across governance, life skills, and healthy environments. Young people participated in the process of strengthening city environments to meet their needs while interacting with other key stakeholders at the community and government levels.
