The metamorphosis space transformer has been further adapted within the framework of the "Zusammenhalt Graz" - Action Plan 2020 against loneliness of the city of Graz.

Loneliness and social isolation have many faces. Regardless of age, income or nationality, we believe that low threshold communication stimuli can help to reduce loneliness.

For one evening, people of Graz were able to test how it feels when the city centre is freed from motorised vehicles. At COVID distances, people could walk through the quiet city and sit on chairs in the middle of a three-lane road. A completely new urban feeling. All of a sudden it became impressively visible how much space is sacrificed to car traffic in our cities. The "space transformers" from METAMORPHOSIS have contributed to the success of this "la strada" event.

Το διαδικτυακό σεμινάριο θα υλοποιηθεί στις 10:00 π.μ. (ώρα Ελλάδας)

Σε αυτό το διαδικτυακό σεμινάριο θα παρουσιάσουμε τη γενική προσέγγιση της πόλης Μεράνο της Ιταλίας για τη δημιουργία δημόσιων χώρων. Τα έργα δημιουργίας δημόσιων χώρων αναπτύσσονται συνήθως σε τρία βήματα: εξερεύνηση και ανάλυση της γειτονιάς, καθορισμός των στρατηγικών που πρέπει να εφαρμοστούν και υλοποίηση ενός έργου σε συνεργασία με τους ενδιαφερόμενους τοπικούς φορείς και τα παιδιά. Το επίκεντρο της διαδικασίας είναι ουσιαστικά η συμμετοχή των παιδιών στην υλοποίηση του έργου.

W ciągu ostatnich 60 lat planowanie miast skupiało się na samochodach. Miejska przestrzeń dla ludzi wypełniła się pojazdami spalinowymi. Podczas tej przemiany zapomniano o dzieciach; tak samo jak o innych czynnikach zmniejszających przepustowość ruchu samochodowego – miały zniknąć z ulic. W zamian zbudowano „rezerwaty” dla dzieci. I nazwano je placami zabaw. Dlatego, że zabawa i zwykłe przebywanie w dotychczasowym otoczeniu nie było już możliwe. Ulica stała się wrogim miejscem, pełnym strachu i niebezpieczeństw – i tak jest do dziś.

Throughout Europe, Metamorphosis has so far implemented over 300 measures that make neighbourhoods child friendly. These measures contribute to physical activity and active mobility by, among others, redistributing urban space to the benefit of children and people in general – as opposed to cars. Planning public space for children could also help reducing the rate of infection and the mortality of a COVID-19 infection in all age groups.

Steden zijn ruimtes geworden vol vervuiling en machines. Bij deze overgang werden kinderen achtergelaten; net als al het andere dat de vrije stroom van gemotoriseerd verkeer verstoorde. In plaats daarvan werden speciale plekken voor kinderen gemaakt. We noemen ze speeltuinen! Omdat spelen en vertoeven in hun leefomgeving niet meer mogelijk is! De straat is een vijandige ruimte geworden, vol angst en gevaar, en dat is het nog steeds.

How to change travel behaviour of people towards more sustainable?

In any given population, some people are more susceptible to changing their travel behaviour than others. This partly relates to more subjective factors such as their attitudes and perceptions towards their current travel choices. For some people the barriers to modal shift are more objective: for example, if there is no bus service operating on the route for their journey, or if they have a disability that prevents them switching car trips to walking or cycling.
