Yesterday, we explored the city on foot 🚶‍♀️🚶‍♂️ and the topic of commoning with @poligonal.berlin, we visited and learned about Haus der Statistik from @matthiaseinhoff and @zku.berlin, we decided how we want to collaborate together and we shared our failures with a healthy dose of humor during a highly entertaining #fuckupnight with @tyronestallone 🤩😂 Photos by @panosgeorgiou ⚡

When #TeamKherson makes fun of all the green vegan food in our meetings… 🥦😂 // 🎇It’s been yet another amazing year of co-creating our cities together!⠀
We’re very grateful for all of the moments we got to share with our Actors of Urban Change in 2019. Here’s a collection of some of our favorite moments together: from London to Rijeka, Hamburg to Budapest, and everywhere in between — it has been a delight to see our network of urban changemakers grow, connect and create more than ever before to improve life in our cities.✨⠀

We’re still buzzing with excitement from our Shift Culture! Artivism & Campaign Design workshop last Friday at @werkstatt_hds! An incredible group of people came together and were super energized to co-create culture change through art ✊🔥 A huge thank you to our Dream Team, @cleobarnett from @amplifierart and Guerrilla Foundation’s Ivan March – for being so inspiring and creating a beautiful, brave space for magic to happen ✨🌈
This is just the beginning! Stay tuned for more collective action happening soon 💪🌏

We’re in Praga, one of Warsaw’s poorest and fastest changing districts, talking to community initiatives trying to help connect the city’s revitalization projects to the needs of residents. This is the beautiful home of the Zmiania Foundation, a self-organized community center that collects books for prisoners and other marginalized groups. “The revitalization of Praga is going very fast but not attending the needs of the community,” they say. .

When actors of urban change visit each other and then magic happens… 😍⠀
Paco’s Pop-Up Café was a spontaneous street placemaking experiment as Paco & Oscar from #TeamValencia visited @nabolagshager and #TeamOslo on a lovely late summer day. The free café was set up in front of a school and was a big hit with passers-by, with delicious Mexican food, games, and good stories from neighbors, teachers and students. So glad our program brought them together and the synergies continue beyond their original projects! ✨⠀

Walking the streets and green corridors of East Hamburg on a beautiful spring day… experiencing the city with all of our senses. 🙈👂🏽👃🏾
Thank you @halllohalllohalllo for guiding us and @panosgeorgiou for the photos!

Last week, #TeamChisinau inaugurated #CasaMicle, a pavillion and meeting space where people can learn more about their vision to turn Veronica Micle Street into a pedestrian zone. 🏃🏼‍♀️🏃🏽‍♂️🚶🏻‍♂️🚶🏾‍♀️
During the Sidewalk Forum, Architects, experts in urbanism and civic activists participated expressing their own ideas and views regarding pedestrian streets and public spaces. The adults, alongside with children, valued this amazing opportunity to have, at least for a day, the street as a pedestrian space. They played on it, engaged in long walks and conversations and drew with colored chalk on asphalt. .

Yesterday, we explored the port city of Rijeka and learned from @rijeka2020 and @deltalab_rijeka about an area called “Sweet and Salt” where the river meets the sea, an industrial area with many abandoned spaces that they are now reclaiming for the local community. One of their plans is to restore access for residents to the seaside and riverside for swimming, leisure and more — through simple and cheap interventions, using mostly what is already there. Here are some impressions of the day by the best ever @panosgeorgiou ⛵️🌊

Oh what a ride! 🚞🚞🚞
Rolling through beautiful forests, villages, and mountains all the way to the sea from Zagreb to Rijeka would have already been enough. But we did it Actors style: had a wagon just for us and took the time to reconnect, reflect and find out what all the teams have been up to in the past few months. All with a good dose of humor. What a great bunch of people! 🤩🙌

How to turn #foodwaste into (social) energy in a super dense urban environment? Exploring new ways of consuming and producing in London’s East during a last supper with @rurban_poplar_london, @poplar.harca, @publicworks_uk and #quantumwaste at their anaerobic digester in the midst of #Poplar.

Thanks to #TeamLondon for hosting our Actors and to @publicworks_uk for the awesome pictures!

It emerged out of nothing last May, and returned to nothing in September. Now, Berlin’s @floatinguniversity is trying to find ways to keep this inner-city offshore laboratory for collective, experimental learning alive. Actor of Urban Change Dorothee Halbrock from @halllohalllohalllo and #TeamHamburg was dean of Floating University’s open programs. She shared with us her impressions of the summer as well as the project’s outlook for the future. Read her story on our website – link in bio! ⠀
