Creative street art marks first Urban95 project in Udaipur

Published October 29, 2019

Urban95 held its first intervention in Udaipur, India, from October 18 to 23 as part of the city’s Road Safety Week. The Foundation’s Urban95 partners, the Udaipur Municipal Corporation and ICLEI South Asia, worked with students from Vidya Bhawan college to paint creative designs in vibrant colours on the road outside Vidya Bhawan pre-primary school, to encourage drivers to slow down and make it easier for children to cross the road.
