Veilig buiten spelen is essentieel voor de ontwikkeling van kinderen. Oud worden voelt prettiger in je eigen buurt dan in een verpleeg- of verzorginshuis. Voor alle mensen geldt: een woon- en leefomgeving met veel groen, ruimte voor lichaamsbeweging en ontmoetingen op straat voelt als vertrouwd en veilig. Inzichten als deze klinken simpel. Maar bouwen we onze dorpen en stadsbuurten met die kennis? Nog te weinig! Dat kan beter, vertellen Gijsbert van Es en Pieter van der Straaten. Beiden werken als strateeg bij de gemeente Leiden. Hun motto: “It takes a village to raise a child and live your life”. Over de opkomst van ‘stadsdorpen’.

The PKN Sendai Team is Safe
It took a while, but we've finally gotten word from the organizers of PechaKucha Night in Sendai -- the hardest hit area following the March 11 quake -- and they are all safe. Led by Daisuke Suzuki of Hiroto Suzuki Architects & Associates, we've been told that all the people who work at the office are safe, but some of them have lost their homes. The damage to the city is not as bad as near the coast, but there are many damaged buildings and homes. In a coincidence that we still have a hard time believing, they told us that they went to view a potential venue just two days before the earthquake, and that they were planning to have their first PKN on April 16, which is the day we are holding our Global PechaKucha Day - Inspire Japan event. The PKN Sendai team is hoping to participate in the global event somehow, although for now finding a venue is of course an issue. We'll keep everyone posted as we find out more.
Poster for PKN Bemidji Vol. 12
PechaKucha Night in Bemidji Vol. 12 happens tomorrow (April 26), and here's organizer Samantha Nienow with all the details (and you'll also find all the presenters listed with links on the official event page):Pecha Kucha Night is your all-expense-paid vacation from wifi. Turn off your iDevice and show your colon-hyphen-right-parenthesis face April 26th at the New City Ballroom at 6:30. You can tweet in person and LOL—no hashtags or abbreviations required. (ROFL is okay, but not recommended for your safety.)If you have attended a PKN, you know why it has been described as “social media in real life.” This is your opportunity to connect with old friends and make new friends. You can like things you never even knew about! You could even gain a few followers. “What the heck is PKN?” Put down your Droid. I’ll save you some googling. PechaKucha Night is a celebration of stories. Speakers share six-minute-forty-second snippets of their lives, ideas, passions, or work. While they speak, twenty images will play for twenty seconds each. That’s why it’s also called 20×20. You can start a discussion, share a joke, and enjoy handmade art by local artists. Listen to your neighbors’ stories. Even if you’ve heard them before, we promise they won’t go over six minutes and forty seconds. We want the New City Ballroom to exceed 140 characters. We’d like to see the whole community come out and share in stories, laughter, and the spirit of making new connections—in person! Participate in a real social network at Bemidji’s Pecha Kucha #12!

The Save our Cyclists movement focuses on communicating street safety tips to riders, promoting accident prevention, and emphasizes the role of drivers in keeping the streets safe.

Two Wheeled Tomorrow
"There aren't many things that have survived this sanitization and overly safety focused modern life like the motorcycle has."
