Group #5 – 5 steps towards women-led urban development

With this projects students’ look at Wicker multicultural environment and look at the communities’ women to reinterpret their role and use of public spaces. They propose workshops, collective cooking, and playground activities to gather women to public spaces. The second step would be to gather funding towards more permanent structures and long-term projects like growing food at the railway bridge, the construction of permanent structure for the families, in order to also create jobs and foster the local economy.
