It's an ambitious project,
because it has to be
Wild Streets aims to become an revolutionary tool for citizens everywhere to participate in the co-creation of inspiringly green towns and cities. It is an engaging way to raise awareness of the value of green cities globally, and to empower people to get involved locally. By asking people what they really want, Wild Streets provides a tool for developers, planners, and decision-makers for the realisation of truly inclusive and sustainable green urban spaces. By collecting aggregated data and citizen’s actual ideas, it can inform the planning of better urban green infrastructure on a world-wide scale. These are mighty ambitious endeavours, we agree, but as the pressure on our cities continues to increase (and our efforts to adapt to and mitigate climate change do not happen fast enough), ambition is a prerequisite if we are to create liveable, low-carbon cities successfully.
By transforming citizens imagination into shareable visions of the future, Wild Streets sets to build a momentum encompassing all age and income groups across countries and cultures. To ensure these visions are grounded in reality and increase the chance they might be implemented, there is input from a growing network of professionals, companies, organisations, local governments, and others. To facilitate these green visions being created, we will collaborate with public and private sectors entities and extend the app with an intuitive, interactive toolbox for communities to help convert ideas to reality.
