Guiding Nordic places to co-creating safe and attractive places – an 8 week e-learning journey  

Detailed info and programme in this service description

How can we turn a place from somewhere you can’t wait to go through – to somewhere you never want to leave? How can we co-create safe and attractive public spaces in the Nordic region?

This course offers guidelines on how to produce high-quality public spaces that will ensure safe and enjoyable experiences for all, while contributing to more equal and resilient societies.

The tools and methods were developed during the Placemaking in the Nordics project: a co-creation project conducted by Future Place Leadership (consultancy arm of Place Leadership Academy), Safer Sweden Foundation and LINK arkitektur, as well as 16 municipalities, regions, property developers and associations from the Nordic region, with the goal to innovate how placemaking can be applied to the Nordics. 

The main outcome of the project was the Placemaking in the Nordics handbook, which can be downloaded here.

The programme gives you: 

  • Eight course modules delivered to you every week
  • Access to the Nordic Placemaking handbook and exclusive resources: digital library, cases and toolbox, monitoring of placemaking news 
  • A community of practitioners
