Alongside delegates from Milan, San Francisco and Athens, Harrie and Alex discussed how the Placemaking Strategy for the area helped bring various interventions to life, in addition to summarising plans for the future. They were joined by municipalities from across Europe, students and practitioners as well as fellow London BIDs.
