Tactical Urbanism Part 2: Adopting Tactical Urbanism in your cities​

March 4, 2020 @ 09:30 - 10:30

Free

Copenhagen, Amsterdam, and New York were not always as attractive as they are today! They have undergone a steady transformation. New York is the most recent to the above list. Changing the streets of New York from the streets filled with yellow taxis to streets filled with umbrellas and outdoor seating is a story worth sharing! Amidst the extensive planning process of designing and implementing public spaces in the city, the communication between city Government and users is often missed out, leading to under-used or dead spaces. Tactical urbanism is one tool for reviving such spaces and turning them into people-friendly spaces using minimal cost and limited time, through a community-led approach. comes with a dual advantage of acting as a tool to demonstrate the design live on the ground and also helps create awareness about the need for space.

While the developing countries, particularly the Asian cities; continue to adopt this ‘people-centric approach’, it often becomes important to contextualize this process based on the densities and nature of the use of spaces.

We are eager to share with you our understanding and learning of tactical urbanism, which we gained by researching the concept, implementing it in cities and working with cities that have (or are) implementing the concept. We hope that you will join us in this multi-part series on Tactical Urbanism.

This series is brought to you by Wuppertal Institute, under the initiative „EnvironMENTALISE“ of the Urban Pathways Project, funded by the IKI from the German Ministry of Environment. The webinar is jointly presented with the World Resources Institute India.
