Workshop: Amsterdam: Building a Citywide Placemaking Approach 2025

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

Drawing on the results of Tuesday's Place Games, how can Amsterdam scale up the impact of its placemaking to a citywide scale?

On Tuesday of Placemaking Week, Place Games will have taken place at strategic locations for the future growth in Amsterdam for the next 20 years. The aim of this workshop is to draw conclusions from those events. What do the outcomes mean for developing a citywide approach to placemaking? How should Amsterdam embed this into its policies?

Representatives from the City of Amsterdam and others will discuss the results of this workshop during the closing remarks of the conference on Friday afternoon.
