LOST ENGAGEMENT OF PUBLIC PLAYGROUNDS The concept of public playgrounds was mainly focused on children engaging and developing socially. The play areas were designed in a way that not only encouraged kids to mingle but also gave space for adults to have their time and meet other people. While this concept of social spaces and engaging in activities to get to know each other has been a well-known concept, it has very rarely been used to benefit people on a large scale. These activities are concentrated on facilities and closed or semi-open spaces such as arcades and public parks that are dedicated to such activities. But with the fast-paced world where people barely get time to rest or spend with their close ones, it would be a wonder to find time to engage in such social activities. What if there was a way to allow people to mingle and engage in these games and activities on their go? What if these games were installed in public spaces in an ergonomic and minimally disruptive manner that people could access in the time they switch places between work and rest?

Arlisa Febriani, Indonesia
Winner of the Blue Bag Competition 2015 – Full Scholarship and living costs paid for at Lund University
Arlisa’s story is very unique and proof that given the right opportunity, the greatest ideas will succeed. By developing a revolutionary water cleansing system, she proved that anything is possible. This is great news for her, the people of Jakarta, and quite possibly the rest of the world who live in places with little or no access to clean water!
