The full set of video recordings from the Future of Places III Conference in Stockholm 29th June to 1 July are now available on YouTube. Below is an index with links to the videos. We have published some of the speeches here on this blog while the conference was on-going. However the recordings below are made with professional equipment and more clear and crisp in both sound and video.

The Future of Places forum was arranged and financed by Axel and Margaret Ax:son Johnson foundation and has as collaborative partners UN Habitat and Project for Public Spaces. The overall purpose was to indicate the importance of public space and placemaking in city planning for Habitat III in 2016. The means are three international conferences (2013, 2014 and 2015), national seminars, books and reports and there will also be an exhibition at Habitat III.
