Project for Public Spaces (PPS) is a nonprofit organization dedicated to helping people create and sustain public spaces that build strong communities. We are the central hub of the global placemaking movement, connecting people to ideas, resources, expertise, and partners who see place as the key to addressing our greatest challenges.
Transforming Places: We help communities and cities shape their future through individual public spaces and broad placemaking campaigns.
Building the Placemaking Movement: We convene, amplify and build the capacity of the placemaking movement globally and locally.
Campaigning for Systemic Change: We make the case for placemaking and engage with like-minded people and movements to influence policies, disciplines, hearts and minds.
We are funded through our fee-for-service work with communities in the US and abroad, grants from foundations and corporations, and the support of individual placemaking advocates around the world.
