Forum: Creating Sustainable Communities Through Public Spaces: Sharing Experiences With Europe
The Project for Public Spaces has enjoyed a long working relationship with the Environmental Partnership, the largest environmental foundation in Central Europe, with programs in six countries (Czech Republic, Slovakia, Poland, Hungary, Romania, and Bulgaria). Together with the partnership, PPS have introduced placemaking through training courses and demonstration projects. Leaders from the partnership will discuss their programs and acheivements in public spaces over the past 15 years.
Attendees at this forum will learn about European experience and projects, including extensive greenways programs, as well as take the opportunity to begin a dialogue about how their innovative work is now relevant to initiatives in our own communities.
