Placemaking and Urban development

On October 30, after consulting the local community and collecting various ideas together with the people from one of the peripheral city neighbourhoods in Plovdiv, Bulgaria we will be recreating the neglected areas around their living blocks, turning it into a welcoming and active space for all. Planned activities include repairing the benches and the fence, installing a tennis table, shaping the football field and installing doors, additional bins and signs for pollution prevention, providing a new kids swings, cleaning the area, and more. To celebrate World Cities Day we will aim to engage the community in the creative participatory process of placemaking to improve a chosen by them public area and to create a sense of pride and community identity for all those involved – thus contributing to bottom-up neighbourhood community activation.
