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.

20 goede redenen voor straattransformatie in wijkenGraz, OostenrijkDo 06.02.2020 10:00De stedenbouw was de afgelopen 60 jaar gefocust op de auto. 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.

Κατά τη διάρκεια των φάσεων του αστικού σχεδιασμού, οι επιθυμίες και οι απόψεις των παιδιών συχνά παραμελούνται. Με το έργο METAMORPHOSIS, διάρκειας τριών ετών (2018-2020), επτά πόλεις επιδιώκουν να επιτύχουν τη δημιουργία φιλικών προς τα παιδιά γειτονιών και ταυτόχρονα να εισακουστεί η φωνή των παιδιών στον σχεδιασμό.

Metamorphosis is initiating activities for child-friendly urban spaces all over Europe. Our project partners in Austria, Germany, Italy, Netherlands, Romania, Switzerland and the United Kingdom organized several events to engage the community and to establish sustainable mobility as well. As you can imagine, a wide range of different topics and creative ideas came out. Their overviews are now catalogued in fact sheets available here: http://www.metamorphosis-project.eu/downloads/fact-sheets

Raumwandler: Wie man Parkraum in einen für jeden zugänglichen, verkehrsbefreiten Raum im Lend transformieren kann.

Graz, Austria
Thu 07.05.2020 19:00

In Graz (AT) transformieren wir Parkflächen, die meist von Autos verstellt sind, in öffentlichen Raum auf legale Weise zurück, ganz ohne sich im Vorhinein eine Bewilligung der Stadt einholen zu müssen. Dafür haben wir den „Raumwandler“ oder auch „Space Transformer“ gebaut. Dabei handelt es sich um ein adaptiertes Lastenrad, welches die Fläche eines halben Autoparkplatzes einnimmt. Zwei „Raumwandler“ ergeben somit den Raum eines ganzen Parkplatzes.
