URBANISM 2.0 – CREATING (INVISIBLE) SUPERCONNECTED NETWORKS – AND BUILDING A FEW CHILDREN PLAYGROUNDS ALONG THE LINE

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 materialise 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!

My BDW began in Milan, having a crazy meeting with Jovan at the design library in ZONA TORTONA. 09:15 A short espresso with Mauricio Ribotti: "Are you sure you have a meeting with Jovan this time in the morning? It must be a mistake!" 09:40 a man with a small black suitcase enters the café: "Hi CARO!" both man hug. "Oh! Galit, you are also here?" We sit down and immediately start to talk "design”. After 3 espressos I know I have found my partner for the next revolution! Coming to BDW was wonderful, like meeting old friends. BDW is the most passionate conference, full of amazing designpeople that share impossible designdreams. I was honored to be a part of this group  - and would love to see you all again!
