Is your downtown situated on or near a waterfront? If so, how does your community make use of that amenity to strengthen its downtown? If the topic of waterfront development is of any interested to you or your downtown then consider attending the Placemaking & Sustainability Waterfront Synopsis conference in Stavanger, Norway next month.
This event will explore how multi-use facilities along waterfronts can improve downtowns, how good architecture and design can build stronger markets and local economies, and the need for establishing modern infrastructure to open up waterfronts and attract people to those areas.
The conference takes place September 15th – 17th and is hosted by the Nordic Urban Design Association (NUDA) and the Project for Public Spaces (PPS). This will be a great opportunity to learn about innovative approaches to incorporating waterfronts into downtowns. For more information, visit the website.
