The aftermath of the Covid 19 pandemic has reminded us that public space plays a critical role in fostering social relationships. The AfterCovid.City Global Charter provides direction and clear steps for thinkers and doers in cities to harness this momentum and ensure that cities emerge from the crisis more inclusive, equitable, sustainable, healthier and stronger.

The AfterCovid.City Global Charter is a result of a dual research effort led by Placemaking Europe and Placemaking X seeking to better understand the conversations and experiences of city leaders in different cities as a result of the Covid-19 pandemic:

  • an online survey, where 104 experts participated from 35 countries and 66 cities
  • two virtual interactive workshops with 80 placemaking leaders from +30 countries

Placemaking Europe is a network of 500+ professionals – from mayors to developers and activists across a diversity of European countries promoting place-led development at the human scale, inspired by the interaction between buildings, streets and citizens.

Placemaking X is a global cooperative network of 100+ leaders and 1,300+ advocates from 80+ countries around the world who together accelerate placemaking as a way to create healthy, inclusive, and beloved communities.
