PlaceMaking Marathon 1.0 is an initiative under the Smart Cities Mission that encourages cities to reimagine one or more public spaces in their city and transform it within 75 hours. Three key principles were considered while designing the projects:
• Light, quick, and cheap transformation– while keeping citizens at the heart
• Build for the citizens and by the citizens to co-create a brave and bigger future together
• Anchor with events that educate citizens and celebrate the public spaces
USCL is actively participating in the second round of PlaceMaking 2.0 Marathon.
