The space development project was implemented in the neighbourhood building of Old Podil in Kyiv by locals in collaboration with the authorities, by holding public participation events.
The project area was characterised by abandoned historic buildings, a low level of landscaping and a lack of public spaces, playgrounds and sports grounds. The project planned to solve some of the district´s problems and be the first step to creating an attractive, functional public space. At the heart of the project was an educational and co-creative driver to conceive and implement a concept for public space development for the local community using participatory approaches to sustainable planning and climate change adaptation.
The project developed the concept of repurposing some parts of the courtyard together with local residents. The implementation focused on co-creating public spaces as a place of interaction and learning for the local community; tools for climate crisis adaptation, and forming a sustainable ecosystem of coexistence within the community.
