Short Summary

Like a real bus, the “Walking Bus” takes a predefined route to school with fixed stops and departures where one after another child board the bus. But the difference is: every passenger is on foot.

Context

More and more parents drive their children to school every morning. This so-called parent’s taxi does not only lead to a chaotic situation in front of the school, but also to a lack of movement and communication for the children.

Short Summary

Children bring neighbours from different cultures together.

Context

In Messestadt Riem, a relatively new district in the East of Munich, an above-average number of people have a migration background. Due to the very different cultures, there is only little contact between the neighbours. From this consideration, the idea emerged for organizing an event which allows a common experience and brings people from this area together.

On the 22 of September in front of the Klex-Klusemann School and Kindergarten a
temporary playstreet was implemented in Graz for one day. In the context of the Car-free day
children got the chance to use the street for play. The organisation Fratz Graz accompanied the measure. 
The conclusion of this intervention is that the street in front of the school can be used for a wide range of
activities. Children can enjoy the space for fun activities and thus public space can be used for something else that for parking cars.
