Playful City Jams are part of an ongoing research project which hopes to develop design-led tools in order to enhance the active participation of local individuals and communities in the subject of sustainable living and working; as well as enhance a sense of regional community. The research started in 2013 from the collaboration between PACO and the School of Design of University of Leeds (UK). Particularly, this Playful City Jam was a two days design jam in Seacroft, Leeds. It was organised in partnership with LS14 Trust, and the support of Playful Anywhere, Playbox and Leeds City Council. Several people from the neighbourhood were involved in a co-design process to identify opportunities and practical solutions to improve the quality and use of green areas in Seacroft.
