URBACT Good practices

The ever-growing database of URBACT-labelled Good Practices includes insider knowledge on how cities across Europe have brought  positive change around just, green and productive cities, following URBACT’s core principles of participation and integration.

The showcased initiatives are effective practices, policies and projects that have been successfully put into place and could be exactly what you are looking for in your own city. Most Good Practices are low-cost and high impact. They should be shared, adapted and scaled up. Stay tuned for the next URBACT call for proposals to submit your own success story!
