Nordic-Baltic URBACT Learning Day: Highlights of URBACT Transfer Networks and Experiences of Adaptation
What can Nordic and Baltic Cities learn from each other on themes such as advancing urban stewardship, education for urban contexts and tackling urban shrinkage?
To answer this question, and to provide an opportunity to discuss current urban topics, six National URBACT Points (NUP) from Nordic and Baltic States (Denmark, Sweden, Finland, Estonia, Latvia and Lithuania) have joined forces to organize a joint Nordic/Baltic Learning Day on the results of URBACT Transfer Networks (TN) active in the macro-region.
The event will be an integral element in the Sharing Period of the Transfer Networks and provide a participative and interactive environment to learn from their results. Additional to TN results, URBACT Secretariat will forward their greetings and share the news about the next programming period of URBACT IV. The event will be of interest to urban practitioners, urban experts, policy-makers as well as individuals interested in urban affairs from the Nordic-Baltic region and beyond. Time to share!
We hope to welcome you at our event!
