The People Parkers recycled plastic mobile parklet facilitates the rapid, sustainable and considered reimagining of car parking spaces and roadways into temporary outdoor dining quarters. Roadways are public space and this product is a tactical mechanism to temporarily relocate this space and inform options for long term changes of use. In 2015 People Parkers was born out of Glebe Point Road Trial Parklet Program which was a case study of how parklets could be used to improve amenity, community and business outcomes along Glebe point road. The aim was to provide a suite of products that could be employed anywhere to demonstrate how a street could be more than a place to park a vehicle which is and will be an essential question as we progress to car-share and shared autonomous vehicles in the future.We talk to Kris Spann, president of the Glebe Chamber of Commerce, winner of the NSW Business Chamber Young Entrepreneur of the Year award and founder of People Parkers, who we've dubbed the 'Banksy of Australia's public retail spaces' for his amazing work in the congested streets of Sydney's inner-west.This podcast was brought to you in association with Stormtech  proud sponsors of our 2022 Commercial series of podcasts.
