100in1day

Citizens transforming the city

Snapshot
Why this project matters and who it is for

100in1day is a one-day active citizenship festival, where citizens transform their city with one hundred (or more) urban, social, environmental and cultural interventions.

The actions of inspired citizens form the backbone of 100In1Day as a social-transformative model seeking to redefine cities by bringing people together in public spaces. These actions range from celebrations of the small things in communities that provide vitality, to actions coming from a more critical perspective that identify opportunities for change. Actions can assume diverse forms approaching topics from different perspectives relating to environment, culture, and society, but derive their inspiration from a common desire to create a positive impact at a local scale.
