National and local authorities as well as non-profit organisations are invited to submit proposals which aim to achieve the following expected result :
- Influence cities to recognize the importance of localized city-wide public space network and policies and to maximize public space areas at a city level.
- Effective creation, protection, design, and management of public spaces, particularly in disadvantaged communities in rapidly urbanizing cities and towns, as critical preconditions for poverty reduction and the fulfilment of human rights in urban areas.

- Improved local policies, plans and designs for safe, inclusive, and accessible public spaces for all which supports more compact, better integrated and well connected, socially inclusive and resilient cities and neighbourhoods in partner cities
What are we looking for ?
The projects will demonstrate that multifunctional public spaces can contribute to meeting the Sustainable Development Goals, specifically SDG11.7: “by 2030, provide universal access to safe, inclusive and accessible, green and public spaces, particularly for women and children, older persons and persons with disabilities”. Interested applicants can either propose a project that demonstrates the importance of stakeholder engagement, citizen participation, assessments, quality design, policy and management for the development of multifunctional public space or a series of smaller projects (around 5-10) that demonstrate how smaller public space interventions can have a larger impact on neighbourhoods and cities.
Applicants can also apply for small-scale projects that support Covid-19 recovery through public space implementation and placemaking. All projects proposed must also show how children and youth or girls and women or older people or people with disabilities (or all) will be fully included in site selection, design, construction and management of the public space(s).
