Tactical urbanism is the practice of making small scale changes to urban infrastructure outside of the official process for doing so. Generally, it means a group of citizens in a city or town choose to fund and build their own infrastructure, like benches or bike lanes, without authorization from the municipal government.
Tactical urbanism projects tend to be focused on safety infrastructure for cyclists, pedestrians, and children, since many cities in North America tend to be structurally unable to build this type of critical infrastructure.

Wrote out the bulk of what I learned from building street barricades out of reclaimed pallets last month, in an effort to get it in writing before I forget. Still need to revisit later to add images, and perhaps some 3D illustrations/animations for maximum impact.
