Skate. Educate. Build community.

These are the pillars of Janwaar Castle – the greatest skatepark you’ve never heard of. In the small village of Janwaar, India, the skateboard is more than four wheels and a board. Here it is a vehicle for social change, gender equality, and education.

Meet the Changemakers

What others have to say

We help you to trigger change ...

... in an incredibly unique way. But it can take some time getting used to.
Skatepark Design
Together with experienced architects from Germany and the US we help you to design your skatepark – for beginners, advanced learners and professionals. The design includes a 3D-model of the park as well as the technical drawings and measurements needed to build appropriate.
The Change Process
The change process only starts with the opening of the skatepark. What follows then is at least a 2-year-process of continous interactions with the community. The process is not a linear one and the precise outcome is open. We can help you to design these two years and make the most out of it! During this time you will find the changemakers in your community!
Workshops
In design thinking workshops (one to two days) we co-create with your community the ideal and right way forward to start the change/transformation process. During the first 2 years you should plan 3-4 workshops.
