The example of the bottom up activism praxis associated with the regeneration of former Gdansk Shipyard illustrates the dynamics of rhizomatic solidarity organized in public spaces around different desires. The process has had emancipatory outcome for the local citizens, resisting the policy concerning the spatial planning practice. In effect, the key policy change for enlisting the remnants of the shipyard area at the national heritage registry was introduced in 2018. Subsequently, in February 2020, the Polish government submitted the application to UNESCO to inscribe the historical Gdansk Shipyard on the World Heritage List.
