Public x Design, Gehl Institute’s annual public life conference, now in its third year, brings together a diverse group of people who contribute to the vitality of our cities.


Together, we’ll dive into issues related to inclusion and equity in public life—the everyday social life of parks, plazas, sidewalks, and other spaces between buildings—and share approaches to planning, designing, and sustaining quality public spaces. Last year we developed an agenda for action. This year, we take it further—but we need your ideas.

We want to hear from you how the inclusive design of public spaces can ensure equitable cities. How are design and planning practitioners implicated in our increasingly unequal cities? And how can we best work with and for community partners to achieve their visions?


Thank you to the following sponsors, whose generous support makes Public x Design possible.
