Through engaging with both the school students, their parents and the wider local community the aim of the project was to understand their issues and jointly find solutions to them. The activities centred on Valentine Primary School were part of a wider engagement programme in the area for which over 794 young people and students, 60 residents and 70 parents took part in workshops, surveys and temporary street design trials. The ambition was to support the community to speak confidently about what they wanted and reclaim ownership of their neighbourhood through hands-on events.
Webinar Mehrwert Nachbarschaft: Wie Verwaltungen nachbarschaftliches Zusammenleben fördern können

On behalf of Southampton City Council, Sustrans worked with pupils, parents, businesses and residents in Sholing to identify how the streets around Valentine Primary School can be made more child-friendly. The aim was to find ways to make the area feel safer for children to walk, cycle and play. By transforming a currently car-oriented neighbourhood into a child-friendly neighbourhood through behavioural change, the project hoped to improve quality of life for everyone. Sustrans is the charity that makes it easier to walk and cycle. The project ran for a year from March 2018.
