All Kyiv residents are local specialists of the city’s peculiarities. They can identify the unique places emotionally close to them, where they enjoy spending time, the hidden treasures of their city, or places which generally provoke kind interactions between fellow city dwellers. These are what we call ‘positive public places’
Which places are the best for you to have a good time in Kyiv?
Where do you want to return?
What do you associate with pleasant memories in Kyiv?
We are interested how the Kyiv residents use the city public spaces.Tell us about your experience!
Together with you, using special stickers, we will pin a huge printed map Kyiv (6x6 meters) with city open spaces,that Kyivans like the most.
Through a series of questions and personal "contribution" by everyone, we are implementing the first phase of the project.
After that we will continue creating online map and mobile application to attract more citizens participate in the project, that will last until November 2015.
We kindly invite Kyivans and tourists to join the project and together create the map of attractive open public spaces of Kyiv.
