On October 1st, a symposium on the subject “The streets are for playing” took place in Graz. In the course of this conference, the Metamorphosis Project initiated a “future factory” with a school class of the model school in Graz. The schoolchildren created posters on which they could express what they don't like in their city and think about how they envision their ultimate child-friendly city in the future (we called it the “tomorrow-city”). They were then allowed to present their ideas to a fictitious city council and mayor and discuss these ideas. In the afternoon, the results were presented at the symposium. According to their teacher, the children were so enthusiastic that the workshop was followed by drawings of their first ideas.
