Life outdoor is more important than ever. The increasing growth in the metropolitan regions creates an increased need for more welcoming neighborhoods with a focus on social sustainability. Since 2007, a bigger part of the population is living in urban environments rather than in rural areas. This means that it is in the worlds growing cities that the work to tackle many of mankinds greatest future challenges must be: creating sustainable economic development and a more sustainable use of resources. The ongoing urbanization increases the need as well as the design of the public space in the form of social opportunities, recreation and inspiration. There are high demands today on the public areas around both newly built and older homes. Home- and business owners have different preferences, such as micro-parks, beekeeping, handicap-adaptation, bicycle lending, as well as the design of shared spaces. Welcome to Public Spaces, a trade fair about the public space that inspires new opportunities for life outside the home.
