PPS training programs introduce new ways of looking at public spaces and provide both practical skills and inspiration to people who want to improve the public environment in their city, town or neighborhood. Training includes building awareness of public space issues and opportunities, understanding how people use public spaces, building internal capacity to implement place-based projects, observation and data gathering techniques, and public space design and management skills.
PPS trains a variety of audiences, nationally and internationally, including community members, civic leaders, city planners, transportation professionals, managers of private, public and federal properties, landscape architects, architects, urban designers, academics, and many others.
