Key issues that will be discussed in the Placemaking: Making it Happen training course include: Placemaking and agendas for transforming cities; Lighter, Quicker, Cheaper; key elements to public space implementation and management; tools and techniques to evaluate your public spaces; and architecture of place.

Who's Coming

Placemaking: Making it Happen is geared toward professionals and students who have an understanding of Placemaking and are currently working on Placemaking projects either personally or professionally. The training presents an incredible opportunity to learn from professionals and network with other Placemakers. We encourage teams of professionals embarking on a new project to register as a group to maximize their collective impact on the implementation and management of Placemaking projects.
