Together with EUROCITIES, URBACT is hosting a series of City Labs, which focus on the principles of the Leipzig Charter. The Lab outputs will feed into the 2020 German EU Presidency’s refresh of this key EU urban policy document.

City Lab #3, focused on the principle of Integration, will take place in Warsaw immediately after the EUROCITIES Social Affairs Forum. This City Lab will link to the policy themes of the SAF, focusing on the principle of integration in urban policy, as well as how cities are effectively employing an integrated approach.

The City Labs involve elected officials and officers, as well as participants from the EU and national levels. The format is dynamic and interactive, with a focus on policy issues on the afternoon of the 24th, an exploration of effective city practices on the morning of the 25th and a Deep Dive into a Warsaw case study that afternoon.

 

Due to its interactive format, City Lab places are limited to 50 participants. The detailed programme and a registration link will be available in early September, but if you would like to express initial interest in attending then please email communication@urbact.eu

  • CityLab #2 focused on Sustainability – the policy paper will be published September 2019

 

The URBACT Knowledge Hub brings together good practices and lessons learned from cities to share with all professionals involved in urban policy throughout Europe. The work programme on exploring city application of Integrated and Participatory urban development concepts began in September 2018 and runs until 2020. A series of practical City Labs explore the technical and policy developments in European cities, and formulate recommendations to overcome barriers. This work is aligned with the German EU Presidency 2020 process to renew the Leipzig Charter for sustainable urban development, bringing city experiences to the reflection.
