We work to improve the rights of pedestrians in Georgia. Three years ago we decided that enough is enough. And Iare Pekhit was created. We started with two little art projects, but have developed into an organization which lobbies, advocates and organizes for the rights of pedestrians.
We are creative problem-solvers, who try different tactics to return the public space to its rightful owners. Our latest project used public art to spread the word: public space is your space. You can find out more about it here .
Georgia never had time to think and plan a future, especially not with regards to city planning. By giving the public space back to its rightful owners, through education, raising awareness, and lobbying, we redesign the future we deserve ourselves.
Our goal is to achieve impact at a large scale and we organize ourselves for progress in a participatory manner. You can become a member. We firmly believe that gaining a shared understanding of issues is a key enabler for building shared solutions together as communities and societies.
