Abstract: This research explores the impact of rapid urbanisation on young adults, delving into their unique challenges and opportunities within evolving urban environments. The inspiration for this research project came from the diverse experiences that young people have confided in me, given my role as a youth worker. The literature accompanying this study highlights urbanisation's various impacts and forces on young adults. It also includes a discussion that delves into the evolving requirements of young people in response to these transformations. One part of the study analyses the historical progression of urbanisation's effects. At the same time, data collected from focus group sessions and socially engaged art practices investigates and spotlights the recommendations presented by young individuals in Malta. The results of this research are likely to pique the curiosity of anyone directly engaged in the substantial changes in lifestyle patterns brought about by urbanisation and policymakers. In addition to its role in assessing and promoting best practices, this research emphasises areas related to youth engagement and identifies services that require additional enhancements. The active participation of young adults throughout the research phase offered them a platform to express their concerns and ideas, thereby actively contributing to the process and initiatives to advance a healthy urban environment in Malta.
