Cebras por la Vida

The Cebras Por La Vida (Crosswalks for Life) Art Communication Initiative, involves communities and the increase of public awareness about the importance of more walkable and livable cities. This project is a direct and emphatic response to an urban tragedy that results in approximately 300 dead pedestrians per year in Bogotá, or what accounts to almost 1 fatality every day. Unacceptable!

Cebras por la Vida/Crosswalks for Life is a citizen led participatory project, as well as a tactical urbanism initiative that advocates for a more walkable and pedestrian friendly city through the artistic intervention of street crosswalks.
This project is a direct and emphatic response to an urban tragedy that results in approximately 300 dead pedestrians per year in Bogotá, or what accounts to almost 1 fatality every day. And deaths are in the rise. Absolutely Unacceptable! A fact that sadly reveals a lack of priority and regard for human life.
In 2013 the project initiated activities with children from City Schools. The initiative has been replicated in other Colombian and Mexican cities. The project won the 2014 Urban Sustainability Award at World Urban Forum, Medellin, Colombia.
