Develop design tools and methodologies for safe and inclusive playgrounds using roleplaying
We want to enable community actors to transform their surroundings and to become an essential part of making the city. Currently, playgrounds are either non-existing or pre-fabricated, gender-biased, and uninviting. We believe children need safe spaces to play, an environment that stimulates curiosity develops skills and expresses creativity.
Participants are invited to develop a playground and discuss key themes such as design tools, methods and materials through a fun role-playing activity. This session will not only explore new ideas but will also bring to attention issues and challenges that we might encounter during our upcoming project launch.
