👉 Since 2007, the civic association Punkt has been involved in the promotion and support of design, architecture and urbanism in interdisciplinary dialogue. Our focus is on comprehensive support for the development of the city, starting with community development, the development of the local economy to the involvement of residents in planning processes.
The association organizes the event Dobrý trh and has also compiled a new platform on urban issues, CTZN (citizen): https://ctzn.sk
This was preceded by the WhatCity? Conference, which brings together experts and the public with the city management to develop it. The intention of the platform is to communicate topics related not only to Bratislava and not only to experts and fans of city life, but also to its inhabitants. Through thematic issues, the editorial board will address various aspects that affect the city and its inhabitants, the platform will inspire functional examples from abroad and will provide a space for dialogue to improve the quality of life in this environment.
👉 However, you do not read interviews with interesting respondents only on the CTZN platform – like WhatCity? it took place in space and time, it depended on personal meetings, so CTZN also follows this format. As part of the platform’s releases, we will regularly address interesting guests whose statements directly affect the set topics.
