Delighted to have been made a PlacemakingX Advocate. PlacemakingX are ‘a collective-impact network of placemaking thought leaders, public space activists, regional network leaders, and professionals from all over the world. We have diverse experiences and backgrounds but share a common purpose.’
The #placemaking movement is demonstrating how to turn the shaping of cities upside-down to start with places, and in the process, invent crucial new scalable models for governing, financing, and designing our cities. As leadership towards this goal emerges globally @placemakingx will work together to highlight, connect, and support these people, their ideas, and their projects.
“Cities have the capability of providing something for everybody, only because, and only when, they are created by everybody.”
