The 2nd International Conference has just taken place! Thank you! The talk was mainly about living cities and tactical urbanism.

  • How to achieve lasting and meaningful change in urban space? Can temporary arrangements help on the way to a good solution?
  • How is living urban space being created in other European capitals, what helps to achieve consensus with citizens and city leaders, and with what results?
  • And what has already been achieved in Czech Republic?
  • Experience in the creation of living urban space, plenty of time to discuss and dive into the topic and a pleasant networking over a good cup of coffee. All this in the premises of CAMP Prague.

Records and photos from the conference will be available here soon.
