A rua é sua

Lisbon, Portugal ,2019

A rua é sua – The street is yours.

The program A rua é sua began in 2019 to return #publicspace to people in the Portuguese capital. Between May and December, on the last Sunday of each month, Avenida da Liberdade was closed to car traffic.

With the restrictions imposed by the Covid-19 pandemic, and to help maintain the social distancing, the program has changed, and currently includes a set of interventions throughout the city, planned for 100 sites.

Bacalhoeiros Street was the first street that was transformed into a blue ocean followed by Rua Cláudio Nunes in green.
If the #streetexperiments are successful, they will permanently turn into pedestrian areas.
