International Resolution on the Need For Quality Public Spaces
The Project for Public Spaces collaborated with UN-HABITAT to draft the resolution.
From the PPS blog:
"This resolution represents the first consolidated approach to inclusive urban public space policy within UN-HABITAT. And although successfully functioning public spaces are one of the most visible forms of public good, Local Authorities' and urban planners' appreciation of its social dimension beyond its physical dimension is lacking. This resolution is yet another sign of a growing global recognition that public spaces are a significant aspect of quality of urban life. PPS is thrilled that this resolution recognizes that creating and sustaining quality public spaces through a Place-making approach is an issue of planning, management, and participatory governance and a key component of sustainable urban development."
