What is the role of a Youth Streetscaper?
A Youth Streetscaper works as a freelance cultural observer and reporter, and is retained in our Network for assignment to regular projects with Kantar Futures. Their personal strengths are an inquisitive nature and an interest in the changing world around them. Our Youth Streetscapers use these skills to explore and report on particular areas or topics of interest to the teen and early-twenty-something lifestage. It is through this process that we help clients understand “why?” certain things are happening as much as explain “what?” is going on in the world.
