Getting Creative for 100In1Day

On June 2nd, cities all across the world were bustling with 100In1Day activity. Joining this global movement to inspire citizens to enliven public spaces, TCAT and  our partner GreenUP created a “Streets Re-imagined!” pop-up in Peterborough. Building on our ongoing participatory planning work in Peterborough, we used TCAT’s new  Complete Streets Game to invite Peterborough residents to re-imagine their streets. We spent a beautiful and sunny Saturday morning co-designing a future with better transportation options for all.

We weren’t the only group inspired by the Complete Streets Game to host a 100in1Day intervention—our friends at Walk Toronto also hosted a Complete Streets Party at Dundas and Bathurst. In addition to the game, the Walk Toronto party included stencils of street sections that participants could spray chalk onto the sidewalk, re-imagining their streets in a creative and colourful way. If you missed out on these two 100in1Day pop-ups, you can still order a copy of the Complete Streets game to try out yourself. We only have 40 copies left, so order one before they’re sold out!
