Interventions in public space


autor: Aleksandra Piasecka


Design of civic monitoring tool, and then revitalization of a city area, chosen by the citizens of Gola Prystan, are the main activities of the project “Design the Change: Revitalisation of the Neighbourhood Coommon Space in Gola Prystan, Kherson oblast, Ukraine” implemented by our Foundation, and co-financed by the Polish Development Cooperation Programme of the Ministry of Foreign Affairs of the Republic of Poland.

As a result, an Internet system of civil alerts was created (http://gopriplus.org/), thanks to which inhabitants of Gola Prystan can inform their local authorities about infrastructural problems which need to be dealt with (such as a damaged fence or lightening) by taking photos with their mobile phones and marking a place on the virtual city map. The systems tracks also interventions made by local authorities and places a tick next to solved problems. In two months of project implementation as many as 177 alerts have been put out, which proves that such a form of communication was not only needed but also very well-received.

On the basis of the submitted alerts 4 zones for a possible revitalization were singled out (a green embankment area, a main bus stop, the Alley of Fame and a ferry stop at the bank of the Konka River). During one month, 21 April -21 May 2015, citizens could cast their votes (in the online, SMS or paper-based ballot) for the zone they wanted to have revitalized. We are pleased to announce that the project enjoyed great popularity and no fewer than 430 of votes were recorded. The ferry stop was an indisputable winner.

The residents of Hola Prystan once again will be invited for public consultations and these suggestions will be subsequently taken into consideration during  architectural workshops run by professional in the following days, leading to a final plan of the area’s revitalization. Next, the concept thus worked out will be put into practice with the help of local volunteers and with support of the project financing. More info about the upcoming events available at our Facebook.

The project main partner is TOP Kaya and the city hall of Gola Prystan, and on the Polish side the city hall of Podkowa Leśna.
