Searching for the Sidewalks!

“Searching for the Sidewalks!” is a walking event that organised in order to raise awareness over sidewalk problems as a part of ‘Kaldırım Nerede?’ campaign. In this event, we aim to take a walk with the participants upon the experiences of being a pedestrian in the city. We aim to pave the way for debates on how accessible the streets and the sidewalks are, as basic public spaces of the city, with a perspective of an accessible city for all. During the walk, participants will be informed about pedestrian rigths, sidewalks standards, accessibility and various practices on the sidewalks. The factors that effect the walking experience will be identified along with the participants. Participants will take photos of the problems they identify during the walk and share them with their locations on Twitter. These sharings will be made visible on our website. After the walking, there will be an evaluation part along with the participants.
