    Team Member

    Oral Presentation 2

    Community co-creation and health promotion campaigns

    Trey Park

    ChangeWalk
    Team Member

    For Trey Park, growing up consisted of drastic urban landscape changes. He has lived in developing parts of Seoul, open fields and country sides of Oxford and Coventry, and in the world’s most complex and diverse intersection, New York. He has lived in three of the most blank-slate cities in Korea, including Songdo, Chungra and Wirye. This diverse background served him well when he went from business undergrad to working at a think tank researching urban issues.
    After his stint at research, he and his colleagues left to try out tactical urbanism first hand, launching ChangeWalk. Tactical Urbanism Project Group ChangeWalk has so far tested out four pilot cases, from using toilet plungers for traffic calming, to installing temporary benches, to building a pocket park, to testing asphalt art. ChangeWalk has also concluded a tactical urbanism guide project, focusing on re-examining citizen interventions in Korea in a tactical urbanism framework.
