LOCAL ECONOMIES, COMMUNITY HEALTH AND PUBLIC MARKETS
Historically, markets have played an important role in the development of waterfronts and continue in this role today.  From small neighborhood farmers markets to urban     market districts, public markets are not only great community gathering places, they can also be economic generators that have a broad impact on their community’s overall development.  Markets located on waterfronts play a particularly important role in establishing a connection between the waterfront and the rest of a community.

MULTI-USE DESTINATIONS IN WATERFRONT CITIES
Multi-use destinations define what a city is about and are the premier public spaces in a city that attract and highlight the local assets and unique talents and skills of the community.  The combination of uses – educational, cultural, retail, and commercial – are open and available for visitors to freely partake in and are accessible physically, and in terms of how they are perceived.  Successful multi-use destinations are always
changing because they are flexible enough to easily adapt to different times of day and year and they are proactively managed to take advantage of these differences.

BUILDING COMMUNITY THROUGH TRANSPORTATION
In the last 100 years cities, (particularly waterfronts), have been defined by transportation decisions that were geared largely in favor of the car. The result is a system of streets and highways that reinforce a design ethos that is more about seeing or viewing rather than participating in communities. However, we are now seeing     a massive shift in cities throughout the world where people want to get back to the idea of place, connecting within communities, supporting local services, spending time in public spaces and being part of local communities rather than in disjointed, unconnected places with no local character. In this new vision, the automobile plays a secondary role to transit, bicycles and the pedestrian.  Waterfronts are the key place in cities where these issues are enacted.
TBD (two keynotes from Denmark and Netherlands will be confirmed soon)

1500    Break

1530    
ARCHITECTURE OF PLACE
In many ways, iconic buildings have defined the past 50 years of modern architecture in cities. However, as cities and waterfronts evolve, a new idea of design is emerging called an “architecture of place”, which indicates that cities will become more livable, sustainable and authentic in the future. Public institutions such as museums, government buildings and libraries will become important anchors for civic activity that host a broader range of activities than they currently do and a new type of design will support that quest.

The Six City Experiment – Lessons Learned
In 2001 The Norwegian Ministry of Environment initiated a collaborative partnership with six norwegian cities; Bergen, Stavanger, Tromsø, Trondheim, Skien and Fredrikstad to carry through a four year networked pilot project with the aim to improve higher standard of  city planning and waterfront developments. Several high profiled projects was initiated throughout the four year program as individual projects in each of the selected cities. The primer focus was to draw experience from the collaborative processes between the public and private sector in relations to how complex city planning issues could be managed through private and public partnerships.

ACADEMY

The Academy will be an extension of the 2-day Conference, bringing together interested professionals and students for an intensive 1 ½ day hands-on PPS training program based around the concept of “Placemaking and Waterfronts.”

Participants will become aware of waterfront issues and opportunities, understand how people use public spaces, learn how to evaluate a place based on PPS’ Place Evaluation Game and how to apply the Principles of Placemaking in their own projects.

Participants will receive a high quality introduction to Placemaking through a real case study, as well as participate in developing recommendations for the site.  The result of each of the groups will be summed up in a final report and handed to City of Stavanger as a preliminary platform for further strategical work.
