Octopus Street : Octopus Post 2.0 for school streets

Octopusstraat : de Octopuspaal 2.0 voor schoolstraten

In March of this year, the Paridaens elementary school in Leuven, Belgium and Voetgangersbeweging vzw (pedestrian movement) introduced the first Octopus Street. It is a creative interpretation of the concept of "school street", in which a street is temporarily closed for motorized traffic with a barrier at the beginning and end of school time. Octopus Street is the result of a co-creating process in which parents, teachers, principals and the neighborhood participated.
