Placemaking Week Europe is Europe’s founding and largest placemaking festival. In the spirit of collaboration and inspiration, over 400 practitioners meet every year to share knowledge, learn and network. The host of the fifth edition is the city of Pontevedra in Spain. A place that for the last twenty years has been an example of how to organise a city around people. Drawing on their positive example, we will look to the future together.
The CUE Transition Pathway has planned a workshop session titled “Building radically regenerative public spaces” for the Place Making Week. The workshop invites participants to envision urban areas in 2050 and how regenerative urbanism can help human societies address and cope with anthropogenic climate events that are currently increasing both in frequency and magnitude. Using fictional city typologies as point of departure, participants will explore and build a vision for 2050 streetscapes.
