It is implemented in each of the 45 municipal districts, in settlements ranging from major cities to rural villages, and from the cultural and political capital to industrial centers, and to date, over 300 public spaces have been created or remodeled for year-round enjoyment. The program is hallmarked by a participatory process that engages with citizens and with the specific identity of the place and its communities, including infrastructure and programs for cultural activities to improve the attractiveness and the quality of life
