Candidates are invited to think openly on what could be the streets if we would add some sport or invite people to do exercises. After all, street can be entertaining, relaxing or inviting us to stay fit with pleasure. Benches, bollards, litter bins, planters, lights, bicycle racks, retaining walls, … are a small example of the wide range of products that are there to help us or please us in a city.
