Liveable Neighbourhood – activities to regain public space and foster social cohesion

A liveable neighbourhood is a neighbourhood in which streets and public spaces invite to stay, sit, roam and play, e.g. on park-like elements or pedestrianised zones, and where walking and cycling (active mobility) is encouraged. It is now increasingly being recognised that attractive, active, well-functioning public spaces help revitalizing communities and jumpstart economic development. The New Urban Agenda emphasizes the so-called placemaking, a collaborative process of shaping the public realm in order to maximize shared value (UN Habitat 2015).
