Be it in China or Europe, the ability to create communities (both spatial and social) is the ‘currency’ that lies at the heart of livable cities. Five years after the development of the CITYMAKERS China-Europe program, an ecosystem of places and spaces for the exchange and testing of new models of livable cities has emerged across cultural, disciplinary and national boundaries.The Global Village Map shows this ecosystem – a snapshot of projects, places and spaces where most activities happened in the CITYMAKERS program during 2015 and 2020.
