Public space is located at the intersection of many global issues—from health to sustainability, innovation to equity. Placemaking Week is all about leveraging this convergence.
Building upon the momentum of 2016’s Placemaking Leadership Forum in Vancouver, this year Project for Public Spaces collaborates with partners Pakhuis de Zwijger, STIPO, The City at Eye Level and Placemaking Plus in Amsterdam to host a dynamic set of sessions and workshops, where attendees will develop and share concrete strategies for advancing placemaking locally and globally.
The timing of this conference in Europe could not be better, as so many cities are witnessing an unprecedented resurgence of interest in public space topics and issues—from accessibility and private development to democracy and equity—and the themes of this conference will reflect these trends. Highlighting issues that are specific to the context of Amsterdam but broadly applicable to cities worldwide, this year’s themes will include:
– Placemaking & Innovation
– Place-led Development & City Making
– Equity, Health & Wellbeing
– Streets as Places & Transportation
(With many sub-themes in areas where Amsterdam shines, such as public markets and creative placemaking.)
