Agenda & Tips


Placemaking Week

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 Week in Vancouver, this year Project for Public Spaces collaborates with partners in Amsterdam—Stipo, City at Eye Level,  Placemaking Plus, and Pakhuis de Zwijger where the bulk of the event will be held, to host a dynamic set of sessions and workshops, where attendees will develop and share concrete strategies for advancing placemaking locally and globally. Placemaking Week will also convene and showcase the Placemaking Leadership Council, the leading global network of public space activists and practitioners, which has been the heart of the placemaking movement since its founding in 2013.
