Quality public spaces have a tremendous impact on environment, social cohesion, safety, health and economy. However, facing rapid urbanization with limited resources, African cities struggle to maintain them. We have introduced the fun Changing Faces Competition to mobilize communities in Nairobi to transform public spaces using locally available, low-cost material and to identify income-generating activities to ensure long-term maintenance while creating jobs for unemployed youth. 4 editions (3 at neighborhood, 1 at city scale) since 2014 led to 200+ transformed spaces, 4,000+ participants and 200,000+ public space users positively affected.VISIT WEBSITE COLLECTION: IF SOCIAL IMPACT PRIZE
