Embrace Winter: Part II - Implement

Many cities have reimagined their public spaces during COVID, with new outdoor dining, car-free pedestrian-only streets, and pop-up parks on sidewalks or in parking spaces. These spaces helped support local businesses, gave people more room to be active, and saved people's sanity during the pandemic. With colder weather approaching there is a concern that everyone will be barricaded at homes for months to come. But can people extend their reimagining to colder temperatures? How can folks extend these kinds of creative transformations of outdoor spaces through the winter season to keep people healthy and socially connected?

Join the Barr Foundation, 8 80 Cities, and Bench Consulting (by Patronicity) for a two-part series exploring how people in cold-weather cities can stay active and engaged all year round.

November 19, 2:00 – 3:00 p.m.ImplementJonathan Berk, Creative Director of Bench Consulting (by Patronicity), will lead a discussion on how to put winter ideas and innovations into practice, building on creative, practical, low cost submissions included in the Winter Places Guide released at the end of October.
