Every month during the summer half of the year, children and adults will be able to play outdoor games and on play equipment, as well as take part in workshops.

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.
