The practitioner-led consortium has the overarching goal to establish a multidisciplinary and transsectorial European Placemaking Network as an entity and with the capacity to offer support and resources to local and national placemaking initiatives across Europe.

The consortium aims to advance placemaking as a new approach to creating better cities together. The goals of the project PlaceCity are to gather proven placemaking tools, test these tools in real life case studies and make these tools readily available to every city in Europe. The aim of implementation is not merely to test the tools, but also to establish sustainable business cases for placemaking in local contexts.

Partner cities for research and implementation are Oslo and Vienna. The consortium will develop itself as a knowledge platform. The long-term impact of this project will be the ongoing presence of a consolidated network and the positioning of placemaking as a fundamental measure for urban development and renewal in Europe.

Placemaking can be very visual and easy accessible. We are collecting all placemaking interventions in the cities Oslo and Vienna on Instagram. We use #PlaceCity with the #(name of the city).
