Presentation - Project Description

METAMORPHOSIS starts from the premise that when a neighbourhood has many children on its public spaces, that this is a major indicator that it is a welldesigned sustainable neighbourhood

Metamorphosis includes trial implementation cities with completely different neighbourhoods. Each city participates with up to four different neighbourhoods, selected to have a wide variety: in size, structure, density and diversity.

Presentation - Active Mobility

A major aim of METAMORPHOSIS is to empower children to become more independent users of active mobility and public space. When children get used to walking and cycling at an early age it is easier to continue with such acquired capabilities in the future.
