English logo of project Safe City

We would like to invite the residents of Łódź to propose areas, which we could together redesign. Within the confines of our project “Safe city – a different way” and with the help of residents we would like to prepare ideas on how to change/modify 3 chosen streets or areas.

The planning will be carried out in accordance with Road Traffic Safety guidelines, sustainable development and universal planning (non-excluding) in order to create safe and attractive public spaces.

What kind of factors will determine where these workshops will be carried out?

  • Residents will have a decisive influence on how a particular area will look. They will also be provided with expert and moderator support. For each chosen area we will organize at least 2 workshop meetings. During these meetings we will together plan streets from scratch. The outcomes will be handed over to the remaining residents and to the city officials. The designing process as well at the final effects will be documented and made public. We will also support residents in realizing their visions of changes within their neighborhood.

How to sign up?

All those who are interested are asked to contact the “Normalne Miasto - Fenomen” foundation via e-mail: This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it.. In your application please provide information concerning the proposed street/area and the list of the people forming the initiative group, who are interested in carrying out workshops. We will be grateful if you provide us with additional information whether residents had already tried influencing the shape and appearance of their street.
This activity will be carried out till 31.09.2015
