Placemaking is the process by which a physical environment is made meaningful, or by which a public space is made into a place. A place is a space with meaning, it is an environment in which people have invested in over time; it has its own history, and a unique cultural and social identity that is defined by the way it is used and the people who use it.
Using Placemaking as an approach, PlacemakingMENA PLATFORM founded by PlacemakingMena and Oecumene Studio supports local communities in transforming their public spaces into vital places that highlight local assets, using community potentials and serving common needs. Partnering on this platform would be a great opportunity to explore our needs, the challenges we are facing, to share our experiences and join our efforts to strengthen our projects’ impact.
PlacemakingMena Platform is independent and Not for Profit and based on peer support.
