For life in the city to be of good quality, it is important that residents care about where and how they live. This is precisely what Foster the City aims to do: to improve the perception of public space, mobilise citizens to take up its transformation and upkeep, and encourage cooperation among citizens, the city’s admin- istration and experts. The principal tool of the programme is an open call, the aim of which is gathering meaningful suggestions from citi- zens as to how to enhance public spaces around Pilsen and help implement those of the greatest benefit. With the help of Pilsen’s residents and volunteers from around the world as well as lo- cal non-profit organisations, there has been the successful implementation of, for example, the renovation of the Forgotten Garden in Lochotín, the transformation of the U Ježíška Mound and the construction and installation of deckchairs and a dance floor in the park ring. The interna- tional work camp focused on the renovation of the former Municipal River Baths turned out to be one of the major events of 2014. Some other suggestions have already been implemented by the city itself. A grant programme supporting the selected ideas will, in the course of 2014, enable the realisation of works enhancing the area around the railway stop by the ice hockey arena and the neighbourhood cleaning of the springs in Roudná. For several months now, a special Closet offering leisure equipment has been travelling around Pilsen. In this and the next year, we can also look forward to a map of little sacral treasures and works of art from the era of socialism, outdoor games in the natural setting of the České údolí valley and lawns studded with early blooming bulbs in the spring of 2015. Further great suggestions will subsequently be appraised within the new open call for Foster the City 2014/2015. Even those suggestions which have not been selected for implementation have not been forgotten. They are transferred into the hands of the city’s administration, which may use them as inspira- tion or may make use of them in other projects of Pilsen 2015. An important facet of Foster the City is also educating citizens on the subject of public space and architecture; every year, there are dozens of lectures, seminars and guided tours taking place as part of this initiative.
