    Current spatial planning and sustainability approaches attempt to create competitive, lively and sustainable cities. This paper argues that place-making approaches and green-planning approaches can assist in this regard as these approaches focus on creating qualitative, socially viable and environmentally friendly spaces. These approaches furthermore assist in transforming temporary spaces to permanent places by introducing green-initiatives as captured from pilot studies included in this paper, namely city-trees, green roofs, green graffiti, green walking routes and green impulses. The objective as captured in this paper is to transform public space and reclaim public space for public use, by means of green-planning initiatives.
