An accident involving an 11-year-old cyclist and a lorry sparked off a series of conversations with residents, government agencies and designers on how to make our streets safer and more liveable. We decided to developed a toolkit for children to learn about mobility and how neighbourhoods are planned. The challenge was to break down seemingly boring and complex matters into something fun and accessible.
In developing this toolkit, interviews were held with transport and urban planning experts, and workshops conducted with parents and children. The final board game offers children an easy entry point to learn about designing a neighbourhood, and also advocates the importance of building a liveable and walkable city.
