You have just finished your classes and you have to go to the boring bus stop? Or it’s one of those late evenings when you are going back home from work and you don’t even want to imagine the people with the weary faces standing in the bus stop? Maybe your situation isn’t one of these but you surely aren’t the one who’ll choose the people that’ll stand with you in the bus stop. But you know sometimes dreams come true. Those awesome projects that have been done in Armenia differ from one other and this project is so too. As waiting for something is boring and sometimes even annoying a new way of doing it will be awesome I think. What about swings in bus stops? Imagine you are waiting for a bus with your children who are running, jumping and not sitting in their places. Or imagine you had a long day and you don’t have time to relax. Several minutes spent in bus stop waiting for the bus will make you both happy and energetic. As far as Yerevan is the capital of our country and a place just full of people I decided to do my project there. Our recourses are limited, so we can’t place swings in all of the bus stops. I have done some research, which I will continue doing, according to which I found the most “busy” bus stations in Yerevan. Both young people and elder ones love swings. Also there will be special whiteboards in which people will write their thoughts, names or just do some drawing. This project can have continuation and can be spread all over our country, but with the help of “Awesome” foundation we can give a start to that fun movement. The swings that will be in bus stops will be highly safe and comfortable, so that no one would get hurt or feel more tired. It is also a sporty thing that will somehow train our muscles. This project is also a solution for parents at bus stops with children. As our recourses are limited we of course can’t place swings in all of the bus stops. No matter what age you are having some fun is always and everywhere a great idea.
