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.
Over the last 60 years the city planning was car focused. The human city space has become a room full of combustion-energy machines. In this transition, children were left behind; like everything else that interfered with the free flow of motorised traffic, they were cleared out of the way. Instead, special reservations for children were built. We call them playgrounds! Because playing and lingering in their living environment was no longer possible. The street had become a hostile space, full of fear and danger, and it still is today.
Nel webinar verrà illustrata l'esperienza della città di Bolzano riguardo alle iniziative introdotte per rendere più sicuro il percorso casa-scuola degli alunni delle scuole elementari: i Nonni Vigili che presso gli attraversamenti pedonali aiutano i bambini ad attraversare in sicurezza, gli accompagnamenti pedibus, la chiusura temporanea di alcune strade in prossimità della scuola dette "strade scolastiche".
Sustainable mobility through child-friendly neighbourhoods - three examples from Munich, Zurich and Graz
Children are the future users of our cities. That’s why it’s important to sensitize them to the issues of sustainable mobility and child-friendly (public) spaces at an early age, thus promoting mobility behavior appropriate to the city. In the one-hour Webinar we’d like to adress this topic, using three examples implemented by the cities of Munich, Graz and Zurich within the the EU-Projekts Metamorphosis project.
Kinderfreundliche Quartiere und nachhaltige Mobilität – wie Gemeinden Kinder sensibilisieren können
Webinar Mehrwert Nachbarschaft: Wie Verwaltungen nachbarschaftliches Zusammenleben fördern können
Eine gute Nachbarschaft erhöht die Lebensqualität. Immobilienverwaltungen können die Nachbarschaftsbeziehungen durch die aktive Gestaltung des Siedlungraums fördern. Verwaltungen wiederum profitieren von engagierten Bewohner*innen, die sich für eine lebendige, intakte Siedlung einsetzen.
The bicycle training "Experts on the road" is attended by most of the primary schools in Graz. 2019 about 2000 children in fourth grade in 90 classes were trained by Austrian Mobility Research - AMOR. Due to funding by the city of Graz and an insurance company, the training can be offered free of charge to all primary schools in Graz, public and private ones.
In Graz (AT) we are transforming parking space legally and without permission into public space again. We built the “Raumwandler” or “Space Transformer” to do so. Simply put, the “Raumwandler” is an adapted cargo bike in the size of half a parking lot. So, two “Raumwandler” put together, take up the space of a whole parking lot and because it is an ‘ordinary’ bicycle, we could park them legally on every public parking lot in the city, for free.

This webinar will be held in Italian. It's the daughter webinar to "Place-making: how a construction site in public space can become a learning and meeting point", scheduled on January 16, 12:00 pm.

In this webinar we will lay out our general approach to place-making actions in Meran/o, Italy. We usually develop our projects in 3 steps: analysis and exploration of the neighbourhood, definition of strategies to be applied, elaboration of a project together with stakeholders and children. The main focus is on the participation of children.
