Omlek wants to fill the city's outdoor spaces – pavements, backyards, and streets – with play. During Oslo European Green Capital 2019, Omlek will be arranged in a new place in Oslo every month.
Omlek is a project developed by Circular Ways and Growlab Oslo. The project focuses on play activities through workshops, events, and various play equipment.
Circular Ways and Growlab Oslo are working on creating a web-based resource database for outdoor games and play games using simple resources. Circular Ways and Growlab Oslo are also working with a school to train up young people from Tøyen and Grønland, and others who want to be "Omlek ambassadors".
Circular Ways is a voluntary organisation that promotes the circular mindset through projects involving the reuse of words, actions, services, and materials.
Growlab Oslo is a studio of designers and urban activists who work playfully and passionately to create positive change here and now, and are striving for sociable, inclusive, and sustainable cities.
