The project is about developing skills in planning and management of green areas (including surrounding traffic situation) and improving the ways the perspective of the child is included in the planning and management.
In this process, the two partners look at the example of Ripon Garden, in Jinja, and how the planning and management of that green area can be improved. As a comparison, we look at the planning of Nordanå playground in Skellefteå.
The main activities are study visits, workshops and discussions. Expected results are improved sanitary condition and green space management of the Ripon garden as due to a remarkable reduction in the amount of litter on the ground (which will ultimately reduce the maintenance cost) which can be reached by children in a safer way. Children and other stakeholders have been involved in the planning of Ripon Garden and feeling ownership, and that tools used for involving children have been improved.
