2016 is going to be full of stimulating communication activies, team up with us in succesfully organising them!

Communication activities are a strategic pillar for the programme, aiming that urban practitioners and decision makers all over Europe have access and share relevant knowledge to foster urban sustainable development. To achieve this goal, URBACT developed an integrated system for communication activities that are organised in three main strands: programme level (coordinated and implemented by the Secretariat), national level (through the National URBACT Points) and network level (through the communication activities developed by the cities involved in URBACT networks).
