Cities worldwide each face their own challenges according to their social and economic context to improve the quality of public space. But how do we create great streets and places where people want to be? Join our City at Eye Level Training and learn how to improve cities, streets and places by developing a people-centred approach to placemaking. Learn about analysing places with placemaking games, develop a specific strategy by using the City at Eye Level toolbox and get inspired on how to create great streets and places for and by people.
Are you an urban planner, project manager, designer, developer, investor, citymaker, placemaker, community leader, manager or property owner working to make your city more inclusive, interactive, sustainable or functional on the human-scale? Do you want to learn by doing to create great streets, places, parks, plazas, playgrounds and other public spaces in areas? Places that are built around social life, where the users feel at home, are involved in co-shaping and programming the place and that also help build the community? Then we have a fantastic training for you.
Improving cities, creating great streets and places for people are more and more on the agenda worldwide. But how can we organise them in practice? Learn the HOW TOs firsthand. Join the City at Eye Level & Placemaking Annual Training with international participants to explore the world — learning by doing — of human scale public space, placemaking and place management, bike-friendly cities, tactical urbanism and on how to implement long term strategies for cities.
STIPO has hosted City at Eye Level & Placemaking masterclasses, workshops and place games in Vancouver, Barcelona, Stockholm, Thessaloniki, Rome, Bratislava, Darmstadt, Kuala Lumpur, Lebanon, The Hague, Utrecht, Groningen, Dordrecht and Delft. Next to these on site activities, we also organise open registration masterclasses in our home base, previously Rotterdam and now Amsterdam, The City at Eye Level & Placemaking Trainings, happening annually for 6 editions and counting.
