A neighbourhood in Budapest co-creates mobility solutions with its citizens

Through the involvement in the EU-funded SUNRISE project, the Budapest neighbourhood of Törökör is designing the city around its citizens.

The neighbourhood of Törökör is situated in Zugló, one of the 23 districts of Budapest (Hungary). In this neighbourhood, there are several mobility challenges affecting all residents including vulnerable people with physical impairments.

Residents of the Törökör neighbourhood have been involved throughout the entire co-creation process which included more than 700 individual feedback items from local citizens, as well as workshops, focus groups, on-site discussions that helped to tackle current challenges linked to congestion, air and noise pollution, public transport system coverage, parking and pedestrianization.

Through a co-creation approach, several measures have been put in place to turn the neighbourhood into a more livable place for everyone, with more space for walking and cycling and less traffic. The co-creation process took place in various formats, both through online and offline communication campaigns.

Check out this freshly released video to see what the city’s mayor, Gergely Karácsony, as well citizens and stakeholders had to say about this participatory planning endeavour:
