    Public space consists of places for social encounter and exchange, places for political action and participation in public life and plays an important role as places for economic activities. The development of large-scale cities has had a major impact on the organization of social life, not only within those cities, but also in non-urban contexts, as ideas about contemporary ways of life have changed. One of the main challenges its related the financing and maintenance of the public space. In this scenario it’s important to include the private sector in order to incorporate innovative partnerships to improve the quality of the interventions.
