Fachaustausch in Düsseldorf

Im Rahmen der NRW-Landeskampagne „Mehr Freiraum für Kinder. Ein Gewinn für alle!“ haben sich 22 Kommunen auf den Weg gemacht, sichere Spiel- und Bewegungsräume für Kinder zu schaffen und zurückzuerobern. Sie haben mit externer Unterstützung ihr eigenes kommunales Konzept erarbeitet, um die Interessen von Kindern und Jugendlichen dauerhaft bei der Stadt- und Verkehrsplanung zu berücksichtigen.

Wir laden Sie herzlich ein, sich mit uns über deren Erfahrungen und Ergebnisse auszutauschen.

Recently several urban interventions were made in Alba Iulia in order to bring people together and to raise awarness on using the public space more often.

Walking through the city you will find several artistic urban furniture:

Wooden bench- by team Kooho- 4 meters long, with a 2 meter tall back rest. The back rest is interactive, is made of mobile boards and can be moved to change the overall picture at every touch. It recreates a picture of the idea of the union of the Romanian nation, a century ago.

The Sandnes Municipal Council has made systematic efforts to identify and promote the interests of children and young people in local planning work.
The Children’s Trail programme has enabled children to identify and register 1265 play areas, 550 short cuts, 130 reference areas for schools and 185 reference areas for nurseries. These registered areas have been entered on digital maps and air photo maps and are required to be used in all planning activities to safeguard important play areas.

Playing equipment on the streets

Most cities are designed for car drivers and therefore offer few opportunities for children and senior citizens to enjoy their city. In fact, there are not enough places for children to play apart from playgrounds. For seniors there are only a few places to sit and rest. Especially elderly people who are impaired due to illness or disability have a need for places to rest and regain some strength.
