Summary

You can tell how bike-friendly a city is by the number of women on bikes. In a city where bike riding in general is not always a bliss, Skirt Bike aims to celebrate the independence and empowerment that cycling can provide to all women and to encourage those who don’t already cycle. SkirtBike is a fun, colorful and friendly women bicycle ride, where the skirt or the dress is the proper outfit.

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.
