The PlaceCity Team will join with special participation from Bahanur Nasya sharing the e-book Exploring Placemaking in Context completed by the PlaceCity team in order to understand the current conditions for place space in the respective case neighbourhoods, as well as how these placemakers work, acquire funding, apply resources, connect with each other, overcome challenges, and find inspiration. We invite you to read and explore the PlaceCity book and join the lunch webinar!
Below is the description stated on the JPI Urban Europe page, please read to find out more information.
"Point of departure..
In the current digital transition, urban governance may risk implementing suboptimal or segregating technical solutions unless city administrations work with capacity building in public innovation governance and integrated urban planning to expand the current policy scope in many urban digitalisation efforts to include issues such as poverty, gender, education, and marginalised neighbourhoods. Urban governance has an increasingly networked character (in contrast to the ‘government’ ideal in the 20th Century). In general urban governance processes are ‘flattening out’ an assuming a less vertically hierarchical structure, this is occurring at different paces with varying dynamics depending on the different regions. Inevitably, it leads to the decentralisation of power. (Source: SRIA 2.0)
The quality of urban places in cities is typically not the product of a single intervention but results from the accumulation over time of a complex combination of factors, behaviours, and decisions from multiple stakeholders. This webinar is a collaboration with URBAN MAESTRO. The project looks at the ways European cities are being designed and financed, focusing on innovative ways of generating and implementing urban spatial quality.
