Call for assistance to the elaboration of the URBACT III Communication strategy
Edited on02 March 2015
The 2014-2020 URBACT III programme is built on the very positive experience of URBACT I (2002-2006) and URBACT II (2007-2013). The URBACT II programme enabled more than 550 cities in 29 countries in Europe to participate in thematic networks consisting of 10-12 cities involving more than 7,000 actors on the ground (local administrations, elected representatives, civil society, residents, etc.).
The main objective of URBACT III is to promote integrated and sustainable urban development by improving the capacities of cities to design and deliver integrated policies and strategies.
The URBACT communication strategy shall provide the framework to set up a communication plan which will mobilise all communication tools available at programme or at network level (URBACT city networks) in an integrated way: online (Internet, social medias, etc.), partnerships, publications, events (conference, seminars, etc.). The strategy should be developed ensuring a strong link to the URBACT programme’s capitalisation activities which focus on urban knowledge and know-how coming from URBACT city networks and from external sources (research, other European or international programmes or organisation, etc.). It will also take into consideration the needs for training and capacity building.
