About Placemaking Week (PMW) Nairobi 2022

Cities are becoming the living room for world populations all over. Already, more than 55% of the world's population live in cities and the number is growing. This comes with great opportunities but equally poses numerous challenges. The United Nations has designated 31 days of October as Urban October. It is the month when the global community of people comes together to highlight these challenges and opportunities of urban life.


Placemaking Week is part of the festivities of Urban October and happens annually and comes at the tail end of the month. This week, it will run from 23rd to 30th October across various spots in Nairobi. It is the culmination of all that has been happening during the entire month. Think of it as a trade fair for all those organizations and individuals working on various urban issues to showcase, share and celebrate the impact of their work.


Any person or organization working on urban issues can organize and be part of the Placemaking Week
