National URBACT Points support URBACT-related activities in their countries and in their native languages.
National URBACT Points (NUPs), represented by ministries, associations of cities, universities, or consultant agencies, are in charge of communicating and supporting URBACT-related activities in their countries and in their native languages.
More especially, they are responsible for:
- Communicating on URBACT calls for networks and good urban practices. To this end, National URBACT Points, organise infodays and promote URBACT cities’ work through their URBACT national webpages, social media, newsletters, publications, videos, and other channels.
- Strengthening the links between local, regional, national and EU levels on integrated urban development. National URBACT Points organise closed and open meetings for URBACT cities to allow national networking and exchange of ideas, actions and results; but also meetings between different government levels like ministries, association of cities and local authorities to influence public policies and to promote URBACT’s work.
- Supporting the URBACT Joint Secretariat in activities aiming to increase the capacity and skills of local authorities in designing and implementing integrated and participative urban policies.
As of March 2021, 24 National URBACT Points operate in 27 countries as seen below.
