Via our networks The City at Eye Level, Re:Kreators, New Europe, the Placemaking Leadership Council and others, for many years we have been working with practitioners all over the world creating better cities and great places.
How people connect to a place is fundamental for human scale, for interaction, for innovation, for a healthy and joyful life, and for a sustainable living environment. Placemaking is fun. Placemaking is fundamental. Placemaking is quicker, lighter, cheaper – placemaking is a shared investment for the long term.
The Cities for All Conference in Stockholm marked the launch of the European Placemaking Network. Around a 170 placemakers from 20 European countries and placemakers from other continents joined together for 2 unforgettable days. The conference in Stockholm was not the first moment a European Placemaking Network was discussed. During Placemaking Week in Amsterdam in October 2017 one of the workshops was dedicated to exploring ways to work together as European placemakers. The energy and urge to work together as European placemakers was the start for the European Placemaking Network. This can become a network that can work closely together with the Placemaking Leadership Council that was started by PPS.
