Tactical urbanism can be defined as “a city and citizen-led approach to neighbourhood building using short-term, low-cost, and scalable interventions intended to create long-term change”.
Actions can be classified as tactical when they have a vision, a local context, a short-term commitment, a low-risk and high-reward value and the support of a community. Ideally, they even develop social capital by bringing neighbours together. Democratic Urban Spaces are a good intervention in this regard.
Tactical urbanism is the term used to describe small ‘urban interventions’ that create more ‘people friendly’ streets and spaces – where people feel safe and comfortable moving around, in ways that are good for their health and take care of the planet. Free urban spaces have a vital role to play in urban planning. Cities have changed with time due to changing philosophy of urban planning.
