As a part of the International Park(ing) Day the Sydney Chapter took over 3 car spaces in the council of Leichardt, and inner west suburb of Sydney. Our concept for the day was 'Liveable Cities' with 5 zones for visitors and passers-by to experience the space that would usually be occupied by cars. The liveable cities experience invited to think about green/ natural space, mobility/ transport, Reduce-Reuse-Recycle and different ways to upcycle 'waste', nature's free energy and think about these ideas in relation to their everyday life and what they wish for the future. Finally we invited them to pull up a seat in the 'living room' and draw their ideas or write it and hang it from the wishing tree. The day was a success in creating a space that had the potential to be used by people to enjoy their community and reflect on today's living standards and what we want to embrace for in the future. All toys, furniture, green walls were made from waste or reusable materials and we kept waste to a minimum. The real turf used as the floor for the day was donated to someone for use in their garden! Next year we look forward to a bigger and better event for Park(ing) Day to continue to create awareness about the use and enjoyment of public space! & we'll take our lessons to the next project! For more information or if you are dealing with authorities regarding event approvals we would be happy to share our experiences. You can email us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
