Placemaking is a people-centered approach to reshape public spaces – but what does that really mean? How does it look like, and what is and what is not placemaking?

Think City invites you to join us for a session in George Town with Stipo, a team from the Netherlands focusing on interdisciplinary urban development, to learn more about how to create streets and places for people, and to turn public spaces into great places that people want to be in.

Admission is FREE but limited to 60 people. Register at:
