Welcome to the publication of the URBACT workstream ‘Sustainable regeneration in urban areas’! A group of experts, urban policy-makers and practitioners from across Europe have worked together since June 2014 to answer the overarching question: how can cities develop long-term strategies that integrate the goals of more sustainable resource use, reduced carbon emissions and more equitable social development? To this end, we have examined key challenges that cities face in these fields and documented some of the solutions that they have applied to tackle them through environmentally focused urban actions across Europe. While our emphasis is on physical interventions at local level in towns and cities, we have also looked at the wider relationships to the social and institutional dimensions of sustainability.
