Newsletter #2 – February 2023

Warm greetings to our PM4I family and fellow enthusiasts of urban rejuvenation! As we navigate through the eleventh month of our groundbreaking journey, we are delighted to present the latest edition of our newsletter, brimming with updates and insights from the heart of the PM4I project. February 2023 marks a pivotal chapter in our story, as we delve into the exhilarating phase of piloting the innovative placemaking tools developed by our dedicated partners.

In the past few months, our collaborative efforts have truly come to fruition, with partners across diverse locations rolling out a variety of creative placemaking tools. These pilot initiatives have breathed life into our conceptual frameworks, transforming them into tangible experiences within communities. From the artistic “Pop-Up Living Rooms” fostering communal bonds in urban spaces, to dynamic public art projects that capture the essence of local cultures, each tool has been a testament to the power of collective imagination and action in placemaking.

These pilot projects are not just activities; they are the building blocks of sustainable, inclusive, and co-created communities. They stand as a beacon of what can be achieved when we bring together diverse perspectives and talents in the pursuit of transforming our urban environments. As we continue to assess, refine, and celebrate these initiatives, we invite you to stay engaged with our journey. The insights and stories we’re gathering are not just shaping the present but paving the way for a more connected and vibrant urban future.

Thank you for being a part of this transformative adventure. Here’s to continued collaboration, innovation, and inspiration in our shared quest to reshape urban landscapes!

Best, The PM4I Team 🏙️✨
