The new encounter-Zone in the Metamorphosis-Neighbourhood "Tiefenbrunnen" in Zürich was inaugurated with a street-opening. Seven parking spaces were also permanently removed in the course of the implementation. This gives children the opportunity to play on the street and to use the street as public space, as meeting place. This promotes both neighbourhood-ness and child-friendliness.
Eight car parking spaces were turned into liveable parklets for residents in Munich to sit down and relax. The parklets remained from July to September 2019 and provided plants, furniture, bicycle parking, a bookcase, a little blackboard and in one case even a small sandpit for children. Previous to the implementation, neighbours were involved and their concerns and contributions were considered in the planning. “Godparenthoods” for the plants (including watering and taking care of the plants) created even further citizen involvement.
Over the course of two months, a street section at the "Alpenplatz" in the city of Munich provided a safe place for children to play and neighbours to relax. By closing the street for cars, citizens could recapture street space for various activities such as chalk painting, scooter riding or just simply playing on the provided furniture. Local shops and restaurants were involved during the process. Nearby, a box with toys, such as tricycles or balls, provided further possibilities for children to play in the street. The box will remain at the Alpenplatz after the street opening as well.
One day conference on the topic "Mobility for a liveable future - a cross-generational and interdisciplinary approach".
