KEPA and the Municipality of Thessaloniki keep advancing together in and through design-thinking. KEPA is proud to announce that the European Commission, in the framework of Design for Europe project, recently approved funds to develop a pilot project on the regeneration of traditional urban markets in Thessaloniki. The project will have expert support from Design Council and its aim will be to deliver a comprehensive strategy to support the short and long term regeneration of the Kapani market. All this will be based on design-thinking methodology. The involvement of all stakeholders, from SME owners to customers and public authorities, to reach collaborative and creative solutions will be a cornerstone of the pilot.
