Reclaim the Streets!

On taking back public space. In englischer Sprache.

The climate-friendly »15 minute city« modell is starting to reclaim public space in cities worldwide: Streets and squares are becoming green recreation zones for the neighbourhood; public transport, walking and cycling are given priority. But the farewell to the car-oriented city creates conflicts and requires strategy as well as political courage.

In Paris, the socialist mayor Anne Hidalgo wins elections with the promise to cut 60,000 parking spaces and to make France's capital a climate oasis. In Berlin and many other German cities, the civil society network »Changing Cities« is pushing for a climate- and bike-friendly urban transformation; Milan's »Piazze Aperte« programme has been transforming 38 streets and intersections into recreational zones for the neighbourhood in only three years time and, like Valencia and it's »ciudad the plazas«, is using tactical urbanism for rapid change; in Vienna the »Supergrätzel Favoriten« resembles the first test site for the implementation of the superblock concept. What do strategies for a successfull climate-friendly urban transformation look like? How important is the role of participation? What experiences and learnings do already exist internationally?
Lectures and discussions will be streamed.
