Skate the City

(Skate the City)

Pippa is 15, lives in Antwerp and loves skateboarding. As she and her friends go to their favourite places in the city, they increasingly find new signs saying “NO SKATEBOARDING”.

Pippa has decided to take things into her own hands and use her story to say what this hobby means to her. In an emotional speech at city hall, she says: “I want to be the voice of young skaters in the city.” Pippa and her best friend Victoria are also troubled by the prejudice they both face from other skateboarders. They decide to organise a large street race in their city.
