As Färgfabriken’s guest speaker, Mitchell Reardon spoke at the Nordbygg Ecoforum in Stockholm. Highlighting the many similarities – and also some of the differences – Mitchell emphasized the need to sustain the public role and the value of compelling city-making stories for each city’s development. He continues by discussing steps that all cities can take, including tactical urbanism and innovative forms of public engagement, to enhance the opportunities residents and other stakeholders to contribute to the city-making process.
