Urbanism 2.0 – Creating (invisible) superconnected networks – and building a few children playgrounds along the line

By Vesna Jelovac

Festivals offer a unique opportunity to test,develop and co-create answers to present-day complex societal challenges. The vibrant energy created by the vast amount of events, audiences and diverse range of international participants, all present during a short period of time, fosters a fertile cross-sectorial ecosystem to generate innovative ideas and concepts.

Belgrade Design Week (BDW) aims to take advantage of these unique momenta to develop the HUMAN CITIES / proposition. We will use its unique appeal of cutting edge international knowledge exchange, networking and career opportunities for professionals on one hand, and on the other hand we will invite partner grassroots projects and individuals to materialize this unique opportunity provided to us by the HUMAN CITIES / project to effectively develop and test new solutions for actual societal challenges, involving local communities and stakeholders in co-creation processes.

Here is a short movie about (second) creative BDW playground for the children of Serbia. Enjoy!
