URBACT’s Good Practices unveiled: 'Inspiring solutions for better cities'

  • cooperation
  • culture
  • economy
  • environment
  • knowledge society
  • mobility

Looking for ideas on how to improve a city’s air quality, support local jobs, or involve citizens in accommodating refugees? Scores of tried-and-tested city solutions have been published online by URBACT, the EU learning and exchange programme for integrated, sustainable urban development.

The “URBACT Good Practice” website opens a doorway to some of the most practical solutions cities are using every day to tackle challenges such as demographic change, climate and environmental targets, unemployment and urban poverty. It groups 97 newly certified URBACT Good Practices in 25 European countries.

Cities selected by URBACT are awarded the title ‘URBACT Good Practice City’. They will then be able to lead and mentor Transfer Networks helping other European cities understand, adapt and reuse their solutions. These Transfer Networks will be established later in 2017, with the opening of the "Transfernetwork call", expected for September 2017.

The URBACT City Festival in Tallinn on October 3-5 2017, will also be an opportunity to learn more from the selected URBACT Good Practices and about the Transfer Network Call.
