Ukraine Masterclass - Melitopol Ukraine

Stadslab is offering a special 1-week spring Master Class in the Ukrainian city of Melitopol. Topic will be to develop new ideas for its major city park; the 36ha Gorky Park. Melitopol has the ambition to develop the park from the perspective of intercultural cities.

The city has over 100 different nationalities. The park should be attractive to interest business partners and to attract part of the 40.000 tourists per day who now bypass the city on their way to the Crimean coast.
