Physical activity in open space is on the agenda of health promotion and prevention. WHO promotes in its corresponding Global Action Plan activity in everyday life and open space. The relevance of urban form and infrastructure as determinants of physical activity including active mobility, sports and play are evident. Photo Voice is a method that offers an explorative approach for participatory spatial analysis. Photos can express specific views of people with different background and previous knowledge. In this module, photos on physical activity in open space are collected individually. Afterwards in a focus group discussion the SHOWED approach is used to explicit the perspectives collected by the photos and to convey it into action oriented findings. In this module, the Photo Voice approach is used as an application of the DiPS_Lab. In this module different groups explore open spaces around the world separately and bring the views together in an integrated seminar.
