2020 NAIROBI EDITION

Transforming Nairobi, Transforming Lives

Changing Faces Competition Edition 5

Reshaping Public Spaces Through Collaboration and Education.

Debuted in October 2020.

Public Spaces are of even greater importance given the COVID-19 pandemic. Data from a renowned public space in the periphery of Nairobi CBD, John Michuki Park, showed that people visited the public space thrice as much during the pandemic.

VISION

To improve the quality of life for all Nairobians and make Nairobi a world-class city, by creating clean, safe, healthy, inclusive, vibrant and connected public spaces.

At the core of our mission is the belief that vibrant public spaces are not just a reflection of a city's character, but also play a pivotal role in fostering community cohesion, cultural expression, and economic vitality. By harnessing the power of collaboration and innovative urban planning, we aim to breathe new life into every corner of Nairobi, ensuring that each public space becomes a testimony to our collective dedication to a better urban life.

 

Recognized and registered under Kenya's Societies Act, we operate under the legal name Society for Promotion of Clean, Green, and Safe Cities. Our multifaceted approach encompasses advocacy, community engagement, sustainable design, and the implementation of projects that transcend mere functionality, transforming public spaces into thriving centers of inspiration, interaction and empowerment.

 

 

Public Space Network facilitates a conducive setting for community-led initiatives aimed at scaling up public space regeneration projects. By bridging community groups with essential stakeholders, PSN fosters a sustainable, city-wide approach to public space management through a collaborative Public-Private-People Partnership model.

Championing 
sustainability

At the core of our mission is the commitment to sustainability and the empowerment of our youth. We believe that every public space intervention should not only bring immediate benefits but also have a lasting impact. That's why we've designed a comprehensive approach that not only transforms spaces but also creates opportunities for the next generation.
