Editor's Notes

  • What can medium cities do workspace
  • Footnote on integrated approach:
    - Vertical integration: bringing together different levels of government from the local level (citizens, civil society, municipality) to regional, national (ministries), and EU levels when relevant
    - Horizontal integration: bring

    Capacity building - Beneficiaries:
    City representatives involved in URBACT networks
    Elected officials involved in URBACT networks


    EXTRA
    Managing Authority: France
    Monitoring Committee composed by MS/PS and Commissioning together different policy areas, economic, social, environmental, physical to ensure an integrated and sustainable action plan and results at local level
  • URBACT works based on its participants' practice,.
    Cities involved in the URBACT network are encouraged to design new solutions to their problems. This learning first takes place in the transnational networks that presently take various forms and that are strongly supported by targeted expertise and methods.
    The networked activity hinges on ad hoc capacity building activities aimed at local practitioners and stakeholders of the cities involved, centring on the design and implementation of integrated strategies and action plans. They are ways which can help: stakeholder analysis, self assessment tool.

    Organisation of the meeting themselves is key; interactive methods: guide for animating meetings
  • Final event is the celebration of 2.5 years working together, Exchange and learning, across EU
    Each city has produced, some for 1st time, an Integrated Action plan to address a key urban challenge.
    Within this network cities have supported each other to learn the best ways to tackle these challenges, to improve understanding, to develop capacity, to drive the change needed at local level.
    Participation in the program has hopefully brought rich experiences, new knowledge and solutions, credibility, visibility. It has no doubt been an interesting journey for everyone.
    You are part of a bigger URBACT community of networks: 24 ongoing networks over 200 cities on multiple urban topics
    URBACT programme, community and other urban policy makers are interested to know more, to learn, to transfer experiences. Programme is here to capture knowledge. We want URBACT results to be widely shared and appreciate.
  • The Journey just started…

    YOU ARE URBACT KNOWLEDGE PLATFORM!

    URBACT Knowledge Hub-we want to amplify your stories and progress, bring them to the attention of other cities and networks
    URBACT web platform: IAPs, cases, films, articles
    URBACT Capitalisation projects- studies, City Labs, events- need inputs from all cities, regions, networks
    URBACT Festival in Lisbon in September will showcase results of all networks
    External events: contributions to conferences like Urban Future,
    Policy development: EU Urban Agenda: Feed what is happening on the ground into the future of Urban Policy, Cohesion Policy, how the SDGs can be operationalised.
  • 1- Each URBACT team member and ULG coordinator is a Change maker > Forrest Gump photo represents the will to do something which brings change unintentionally > we should just keep our enthusiasm going…

    2- You have set up and led Local Groups, brought in ideas from other stakeholders, looked at evidence, generated new solutions. > learning collaboration


    3- This is not the end - Now time to implement your Action Plans
    The Future of cities in EU depends on you. Your energy, commitment, willingness to learn, to innovate, to facilitate participation and engagement.
    To deliver what you now know are the best actions to get the results
  • Mention:
    URBACT Festivals – the EU event on urban development where cities meet - In Tallinn 2017 more than 170 cities were present
    The Festival is open to all city practitioners!
    There will be dedicated sessions for APN (marketplace, panel discussions, training modules) – we will get in contact with LP-LE for this. We’re also open for proposals!
    Not a copy-paste of final events (20 on-going), we’re also lookging for the hyperlocal (city, local voices) or the macro perspective (several cities or networks joining forces)


    Call for APN end of 2018
  • We hope your IAP and new knowledge will help you to bring resources into your city > ERDF, UIA, EU funds, partnerships

    URBACT will continue to support and follow up – we are curious to learn about your progress and implementation of plans

    Urban challenges are ongoing– don’t stop!
  • On behalf of URBACT community- Congrats on results achieved.

    Bon courage- always part of the URBACT community, keep in touch, and continue to inspire us!

    Please continue to inspire us!

    Keep the Networking spirit and stay in touch
