First chapter of the Global Nighttime Recovery Plan released, focusing on use of outdoor space. Download it on www.nighttime.org

In response to the severe and increasing vulnerability of global nighttime economies and cultures caused by COVID-19, a global collaboration of some of the foremost minds on nightlife governance and urban planning, spearheaded by nightlife advocacy agency, VibeLab, has created the Global Nighttime Recovery Plan (GNRP).

Pent-up demand for social activity combined with the continued restrictions on use of indoor areas has led to a sudden increase in demand for outdoor space. GNRP’s first chapter, released Wednesday the 22nd of July, responds to this demand, exploring the management of outdoor space and sound to create open-air nightlife that is both safe and feasible in the context of the global pandemic.

Realistic, objective, empowering: The GNRP is written to provide all members of the night-time ecosystem the tools and inspiration to aid their cities in planning and executing responsible re-opening. It is both a collaborative and flexible document, and will be updated as circumstances change and new information becomes available.
