Mobility and public space

For us, public space is at the same time built and social space. In our projects we advocate structural and social conditions that allow persons of all ages to use and participate in public space without barriers. Above all, public space is a space of movement. Thus, we strongly support the self-determined, health promoting and active mobility of all different target groups.

„We move it!“ (Wir bewegen was!) asks how towns must be shaped, so that young people can enjoy an active urban mobility and move around affordably, independently, environmentally friendly and healthy. The project especially reaches out to teenagers with a less possibilities of participation and supports them with the help of youth workers. Municipal authorities get in touch with the teenagers and their requests and collaborate with them in various fields, which is particularly important when it comes to questions of healthy urban mobility.

 

The project “ACTIVE-HEALTHY to Kindergarten and School” has been set up to develop the programme “Active and healthy mobility management for Viennese Kindergartens and Schools”. queraum is responsible for the evaluation of the project.

The health promotion project "Healthy Kids" is part of the Viennese programme "Healthy Districts". Together with partners from the field of open youth work, queraum. cultural and social research carries out innovative and participatory projects with kids and young people in nine Viennese districts.

Social integration/inclusion remains one of the main challenges in schools. "Inclusive Spaces" tries to tackle this problem. The project tries to generate knowledge that contributes to foster social cohesion and "successful inclusion" in schools. Social space theory provides the framework for the research.

Commissioned by the Federal Ministry of Labour, Social Affairs and Consumer Protection, the Guidelines “Mobility in old age” will support the creation of an elderly-friendly environment in order to make the public areas easily accessible for older people and people with restricted mobility. queraum is responsible for the development of the publication and considers the inclusion of the perspectives of experts and older people as extremely important.

The "Inclusive Spaces 2.0: My School and My Block!" project is about researching social spaces of New Middle Schools and communities in the 22nd district of Vienna. Students and professional researchers will investigate these questions jointly, using innovative methods that connect to the lifestyles of young people.

The "Healthy Districts" programme, funded by the Wiener Gesundheitsförderung, consists of various modules. One of these modules is dedicated to health promotion activities for young people and is carried out by a consortium of queraum. cultural and social research and the women's health centre FEM.

The overall objective of the project Mobility Scouts is to involve older men and women in decision-making processes and enable and empower them to contribute to the creation of age-friendly environments and services as co-producers. The Mobility Scouts concept was piloted as an EU project with several partners. In 2019, the project is again carried out in Vienna.

The project is based on the experiences made in the EU project "Senior-Guides". Older volunteers will be trained and supported to develop "information tours" targeting peers that are interested in the possibilities and services provided in the Viennese district Leopoldstadt. The focus of these tours will be on the issue of health promotion. queraum is responsible for the implementation of the project.
