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.

Temporary trial of co-designed street improvements at Valentine Primary School, Southampton (Part 4/4)

The ‘Street Kit’ was left in place on the verges and in front of the school for 14 weeks to enable the effects to be experienced over a period of time with local residents watering the plants in the ‘street kit’. Despite concerns, all the pieces remained in place undamaged, and more children used the painted crossing and lollipop person rather than crossing elsewhere along the road. Before the kit was removed a survey was undertaken revealing that 95% of parents and residents would like to see the measures made permanent and 72% felt they had made the streets a lot more child friendly.

Temporary trial of co-designed street improvements at Valentine Primary School, Southampton (Part 3/4)

The Street Trial of the co-designed items took place on Valentine Avenue, outside the school on Friday 22nd June 2018. The road was closed at 1pm and then Sustrans and My Journey staff supported children to recreate the workshop designs on the street. Visual, colourful and creative crossings were created in spray chalk outside the main entrance of the school. The Sustrans colourful ‘street kit’ was used to create planters and seating in front of the school and in the verges to make the space brighter, more enjoyable to dwell in and limit inappropriate parking.
