Watch and follow along Marika's wonderful story about the Angers Waterfront in Angers, France in the transition from water to land placemaking. Wigwam Conseil , founded by Marika in Nantes, France in 2007, works at the interaction between climate issues and human organisation (both public and private groups) to inspire lasting sustainable change. Their work on the Angers Waterfront exemplifies placemaking as an iterative and layered organic process that requires deep listening, intuitive empathy, and a philosophical outlook using creative problem solving and taking short term quick wins towards an overall strategic plan tapping into the wisdom of the community.
Before we dive into the Angers Waterfront case story, you can first learn a bit about the Place-Led Development Working Group under Placemaking Europe from Board Member Hans Karssenberg, as well as what is place-led development from Clementine Robert.
We hope you enjoy this captivating webinar recounting Marika's challenges, key ingredients, and lessons learned!
