Real examples and inspiring ideas 

The course Introduction to Placemaking was super helpful for me to understand the topic fully, as I always had so many questions about placemaking. Especially if I am "allowed" to do placemaking because I never wanted to commit the mistake to do "place washing" - now I am a lot more clear about this!

As I am not a native English speaker and live in Germany I understood every lesson and it helped me to become better in this field! I am thrilled to start new placemaking projects here in my hometown Oldenburg. THANK YOU!
