URBACT III Launch Event
URBACT III celebrated its official launch in Brussels on the 16th of March 2015. Participants learned about URBACT’s work so far and about the features of the new programme.
We were delighted that Corina Creţu, European Commissioner for Regional Policy, and Raphaël Le Méhauté, Director for Cities and Urban Cohesion, CGET, Managing Authority of URBACT joined us for the event. The launch was an opportunity for the Commissioner and Mr. Le Méhauté to share their thoughts on the importance of the programme and its role in supporting cities to achieve Europe’s shared goals.
Cities are the lifeblood of URBACT so, naturally, the event included a number of urban practitioners, sharing their experience in URBACT and explaining the benefits of the programme for their cities.
