Implement and help develop our open source toolbox

If you want to learn more about placemaking tools that have been developed by placemakers all around the world, have a look at our open source Toolbox, where you will find many do-it-yourself manuals to apply in your placemaking process. 

If you want to have your tool shared in our toolbox, contact us via email or fill out the form below and we will get back to you. And if you successfully implemented a tool in your project we love to hear from you too, and share your experience to inspire others to do the same.

Join a working group

Some of the most active members and leaders of our Placemaking Europe network collaborate in one of our working groups. Most of them have regular virtual meetings, initiate projects together or organize an event, such as a Placemaking Pils. Please find all of them listed on our newly launched Working Groups page, where the coming time more and more working groups will be released. If you see a working group of your interest, feel free to reach out to them directly to see how you may get involved.

Become a Placemaking Europe leader

As you may understand by now Placemaking Europe is shaped by the 4000+ members of our community, our partners, board, organisation, working group members and leaders. Each year our board and organisation invites a group of about 100 leaders that actively help shape the future of Placemaking Europe. These leaders are expected to commit and invest time and resources to collaboratively grow the impact of our movement. 

Are you interested in becoming a leader in the future? Then first of all we invite you to become active in our network in ways that fit your professional endeavours. If your interest continues to grow over time, feel invited to contact me to explore opportunities for the future.

Cover Placemaking Week Europe in media

We believe that placemaking can help our cities and communities function better. We are a network of practitioners from different countries and disciplines. One of our missions is to spread the word about placemaking and encourage people to join our international community of placemakers and use placemaking in their activities. We see a huge role for the media in this mission. If you would like to join us during Placemaking Europe Week in Pontevedra and share this information with the audience, please contact Dimitra Zouni.
