Trainings and CLasses

We regularly offer and customize placemaking trainings for diverse groups of professionals, government and citizen leaders. We frequently host training sessions as add-ons to conferences, for government agencies, for foundations, to help launch city-wide placemaking campaigns, or for professional groups. During a PlacemakingX training, you'll have the opportunity to learn from pioneers of the placemaking movement who have spearheaded countless projects, programs, and campaigns across diverse contexts. We recently hosted a PlacemakingX training in NYC(pictured above).

Our training courses are ideal for placemaking advocates and practitioners, place managers, real estate developers, creative bureaucrats, funders, community organizers, and enthusiastic individuals.

Local Campaign and Network Development

We have helped to develop over 24 regional and national placemaking networks, covering much of the globe, that support local and national learning, advocacy, and action campaigns. We believe in the power of collaboration and grassroots action to transform communities. We invite you to participate in this global movement by making your city, country and region a driving force for local and global change.

Our network of leaders and organizations is at the forefront of impactful PlacemakingX Campaigns. These local campaigns utilize tactics, including demonstration projects, exhibits, capacity-building workshops, presentations, research, thought leadership, placemaking visions, and convening.

By joining a placemaking network, you can be part of a collective effort to effect change and make a difference in your community. We offer support and resources to help you connect with like-minded individuals and organizations who share your passion for placemaking. Together, we can drive positive transformations and create places that genuinely reflect the needs and desires of those who inhabit them.

Explore our Map of Networks to see if your country or region is already part of the Placemaking Movement. If it is, we encourage you to join forces with existing initiatives and contribute your ideas and expertise. If your country or region still needs to be represented, we can assist you in establishing connections and working towards the formation of a network.
