We have had the pleasure of showing Jason Roberts from Better Block around in Copenhagen the 11th of December 2015. Better Block is an extremely inspiring project started in Texas, where Jason and his team within a short time transformed a block (or other areas of the cities) to a place where things happens.
Kind of our approach to creating “greenscapes” for Urban Gardening and farming over night. Better Block works as a Non Profit organization while Team Better Block work as a for profit organization.
We are proud and happy to be able to show interesting people around our city, and are looking forward to collaborating with Team Better Block on future projects.
Cities around the U.S. are looking for tools to help redevelop communities that enable multi-modal transportation while increasing economic development, and reducing carbon emissions. The “Better Block” project is a demonstration tool that acts as a living charrette so that communities can actively engage in the buildout process and provide feedback in real time. This site is dedicated to providing news, information, and utilities to help cities develop their own Better Block projects and to create a resource for best practices.
