Placemaking Week 2017 Call for Proposals

Project for Public Spaces (PPS) invites planning professionals to submit presentation proposals for its Placemaking Week 2017. Proposals are due Friday, April 28, 2017.

Placemaking Week 2017 will take place October 11–14, 2017, in Amsterdam. The event will bring together activists, practitioners, and city planners from all over the world to share the stories, projects, and innovations that are making placemaking one of the most critical movements of the 21st century.

Proposals can be submitted for any of the following four topic areas:

  • Placemaking and innovation
  • Equity, health, and well-being
  • Transportation and streets as places
  • Governance, planning, and urban development

Multiple proposals may be submitted, but no more than two will be selected. Strong preference will be given to interactive workshops, sessions that include diverse voices, more innovative formats over lecture-style presentations and off-site workshops that use Amsterdam as a living laboratory.

Visit the conference website for more information about the conference and to submit a proposal. Email PPS at info@placemakingweek.org about proposal questions.
