As part of the Sustainable Mobility in the South Caucasus project (Mobility4Cities) and its Safe Way to School program, a tactical urbanism school street pilot was developed at N14 Public School of Batumi, Georgia. Together with Mobility4Cities and the Black Sea Academy, Mobycon held a walk-in café community event at the end of 2021 to gather input and begin planning for the temporary intervention. The feedback that was collected informed the pilot in the spring of 2022.

For six days, the street in front of the N14 Public School was closed to car traffic and parking. Together with the pupils, their parents, the school staff as well as the Batumi City Hall, the team transformed the new public space and showed what could be possible when it was open to people. Over the six days, workshops and other activities were held, data was collected, and a newly liberated space was created.

This Safe Way to School Tactical Urbanism Pilot served as a showcase of how tactical urbanism interventions can support the process of creating safe ways to school for children. Mobycon created a guidebook with the results of this experimentation so that other municipalities of the country can benefit from the accumulated knowledge.
