On their way to school, many children have to cross numerous streets every morning. All too often parking cars, hoardings etc. are blocking their view so that they have to step on the street to see if they can cross it. In a residents' meeting for children in the district Isarvorstadt, the safety of school routes was a big issue. Supported by the politics, the local environment organisation 'Green City' has launched a project to provide safer routes to school. Together with the children they build containers with plants, painted them and put them up to create a colourful zebra crossing.

Under the slogan “Play me, I'm yours” 17 pianos could be found at public spaces all over Munich. The idea behind is simple but effective: Music touches people and joins nations and generations. From the 31th of August until the 17th of September 2017 everyone was invited to take a seat and make music. Each piano had its individual character. Artists, architects, students, kindergartens, youth facilities and other creative minds were asked to submit their ideas for the design and the best were put into practice.

Every morning, the large amount of cars leads to a lot of traffic and a big chaos on the streets of Munich. Instead of waiting for the politicians to change something about that, the primary school in the district Ramersdorf took action to improve the situation: on the initiative of the parents' council, the school started a class competition. From the end of June until the end of July 2017, the children collected balls for each time they were not brought or picked up by car. The class who moved in the most eco-friendly manner has won the first place.
