Building Safe and Vibrant Streets and Public Spaces in Africa

June 6-10, 2016 Bellagio, Italy

Streets and public spaces are a key element of individual and social well-being and are critical for the historic, environmental, social and economic functioning of cities.   However, in many cities, especially in African countries, streets and public spaces are chaotic, poorly planned and maintained, if they exist at all. The goal of this project is to create a platform upon which African cities can build and maintain strong streets and public spaces.
