The Power of Place
Wednesday, October 5, 2022
10:00 AM - 11:00 AM
Location: Webinar
When we think of placemaking, we typically imagine how we dress up our favorite public space, but the concept of place is so much bigger. Place is ubiquitous. It affects everything we do, and it is one of the largest determinants of the type of life we lead. We are always surrounded by place. How places are built, how they function, and how they are designed dictate how people go about leading their lives.

Our places have the ability to make us proud or make us feel ashamed. They can bring us closer to one another or make us feel alone. The places we shape, determine our physical, mental, social, and economic health. In understanding how much our places shape our lives; we begin to understand how much better we need to do in shaping our places. This session will lay out why we should focus all our efforts on place and how we can transform a community simply by upgrading the surroundings.
