Workshop: The European Placemakers Network: Setting a European Agenda

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule, view media, leave feedback and see who's attending!

During this workshop, participants will collaboratively set an agenda for the European Placemaking Leadership Council. 

In preparation for Placemaking Week, European academics and knowledge institutions have been interviewed on how we can work together on placemaking in a European context. The results of these interviews will provide the foundation for a united European placemaking agenda to share knowledge, combine our research strengths, and close the gap between researchers and practitioners.

Several interviewees will be present, including Michael Mehaffy (Future of Places/KTH), Beitske Boonstra (Ghent University), Ciaran Cuffe (DIT Dublin), Levente Polyak (Eutropean/Re:Kreators), and more.
