Participatory Planning with Children

Student Perspective on Budafok Downtown

  • 941

The aim of the project SzÉpítészek was to involve primary and secondary school children from Budafok into the community planning process of the downtown renewal in 2014. The kultúrAktív prepared a workshop serial about built environment to discuss the needs and demands of children living in the city, and analyze the potential of integrating those ideas into the district renewal plan.

On long term our aim is to raise awareness, strengthen the sense of belonging and give stake to children to shape their environment and participate in local actions and in the life of their own city.

The results of the workshops were exhibited in the main hall of the Budai Nagy Antal Gymnasium and was opened for the public. The opening ceremony was accompanied by a discussion forum and students presented their projects for the community. The project results were also published in the community planning paper of the city.
