URBACT in words

URBACT is a European exchange and learning programme (*) promoting sustainable urban development.  

We enable CITIES to work together to develop solutions to major urban challenges, reaffirming the key role they play in facing increasingly complex societal changes.

We help cites to develop pragmatic SOLUTIONS that are new and sustainable, and that integrate economic, social and environmental dimensions.

We enable cities to SHARE good practices and lessons learned with all professionals involved in urban policy throughout Europe.

URBACT is 500 cities, 29 countries and 7,000 active participants.

URBACT is jointly financed by the European Union (European Regional Development Fund) and the Member States.


(*) This European programme is part of Europe’s cohesion policy: its goal is to help implement the Lisbon-Gothenburg Strategy, which prioritizes competitiveness, growth and employment.
