Our Approach

The role of public spaces in cities and communities in creating and fostering important human values of social integrity, inclusion, democracy, and empathy is well established. Public spaces build a strong sense of community, increase feelings of safety and security, and encourage community members to participate in collective affairs and undertake acts of civic responsibility. One way of increasing civic participation is by creating and preserving public spaces in our cities. The concept of ‘public space’ here refers to not just physical spaces like public parks or lakes but intellectual and social spaces that are inclusive in spirit.
