Share

The current climate crisis calls for collaboration and sharing knowledge. We can’t afford to keep it all to ourselves. We wish everybody a PRKLT in their street!

Examples

 

How does it work?

Process

Download the plan. Co-create the modules with your neighbours (in Rotterdam, you should involve at least three neighbours). Check with your municipality if it’s OK to take one parking space for more fun and green in your street.

Construction

Built on a platform of easily connectable 50 x 50 cm squares the system gives space to an unimaginable number of options to build on top. Planters, bicycle parking, benches, etc.

Approval

Each city has its own rules. In Rotterdam, we worked together with the municipality we developed a participatory approach to create the necessary local support and deal with opposition. 

“It makes our street look nicer. We added herbs which I use to cook meals that we share with other neighbours. It brings our street together!"
