Healthy Cities are Gender Equal Cities

On the occasion of International Women’s Day 2021, the Healthy Cities network explores how urban planning can be used to foster equality, health and happiness – from active mobility, to culture and the integration of green spaces.

 

Action planning for gender equality

Involving citizens in building action plans for gender equality has proved successful for the Women’s Office of Frankfurt am Main, partner in the Genderedlandscape network. The action planning has led to campaigns fighting sexism and gender stereotyping, and promoting women in politics.

 

Circular economy actions around the EU

Have a read through the Tropa Verde network newsletter, an engaging collection of stories, ranging from the European Parliament’s resolution supporting #EUGreenDeal goals, to local sustainability prizes and workshops.
