International Symposium and Training School

Mapping the Way Forward for a Better Society

Venue: Museum of Architecture and Design, MAO, Rusjanov trg 7, Ljubljana Placemaking refers to the inclusive process of creating and improving public spaces to promote health, happiness, and well-being for individuals and communities. Creating vibrant, accessible, and inclusive public spaces is crucial for building a sense of community and fostering social cohesion. Placemaking can help to create attractive, safe and welcoming spaces where people from diverse backgrounds can come together, interact, and build relationships. If properly designed, such places can also mitigate the challenges of contemporary societies, such as social alienation, mobility issues, impacts of climate change etc. Placemaking can also be an economic driver by attracting new visitors, supporting small businesses, and increasing property values.
