Sign up here to join a 3-hour hands-on training on placemaking and flexible street design!

A hands-on training packed with actionable strategies to transform your streets into places and to reclaim their rightful place as shared front yards in the public realm. The curriculum is jointly created by the Streets and Transportation team at Project for Public Spaces, and the renowned Dutch consulting firm – Mobycon.
This interactive session aims to build a stronger understanding of transportation and its role in creating (or disrupting) community. We will begin with an introduction of core ‘Streets as Places’ principles and move into implementation tactics, followed by an exercise to apply some of the tactics shared. 

The training materials will focus on:
- Transportation infrastructure and its role in enabling livability and placemaking
- PPS's new (in the works) humanizing streets by design guidelines
- A focus on the most vulnerable road users - children and their mobility in the built environment
- Placemaking process and starting with the community
- Designing for flexibility and life in the streets - Dutch tactics translated for global inspiration
- On the ground tools - Placemaking tactics, Place and flow analysis of streets
- Co-creative approach to design and governance of streets
