Green Treasure Hunt
1st August 2015 for six weeks
Culminating in an after show celebration on 13th September
It will consist of:
•Five themed "Street Pockets" - one to represent each of the green capital themes.
ENERGY - FOOD - NATURE - RESOURCES - TRANSPORT
•Five local "Green Treasures".
•Linked together by 10 "Hidden Treasures". Unmapped installations that can be found by answering a question, located at the mapped locations, using your mobile and following the clue and geotag.
•A printed A3 folded map illustrating the street pockets, green treasures and active travel routes that link them all together. Passport stamps can be collected from all ten mapped locations.
•A mobile optimised website, integrated with social media that hosts the map and enables you to log your finds and post pictures on-line.
The aim is to:
•Encourage people to explore their local “green treasures” both physically and on-line.
•Inspire people to try active travel and discover their local routes.
•Map and collate existing walking and cycling routes and present them in a simple format.
•Use strategically placed street pockets to change the feel of a place, reduce road danger and enhance existing routes.
Street Pockets - Temporary, freestanding installations that usually takes the place of one car parking space. It can include seating, planters, signposts, bike stands and can be individualised by the community that initiates it but most of all it should be fun.
Hidden Treasures - Tiny installations, hidden en-route. It may be in the hollow of a tree, in a shop window, through a hole in a fence etc.
Take a completed treasure hunt passport or a mobile with a completed trail confirmation to any of the mapped locations to receive your Treasure Hunt Temporary Tattoo.
