Cities have become more exciting. People have been sliding down waterslides in the middle of high streets, street artists are painting murals on walls which purify the air, lamp posts are talking to people, steps are being played like a piano, and that's just the beginning.
Technology is giving people more power and tools to make change happen, and they have been coming up with amazing ideas to make their spaces even better places to be.
So can we do the same, and make Croydon more exciting?
