To ensure the best learning environment the lead partner will facilitate a process of partner selection with the following criteria in mind:
All partner will be small sized cities (population below or around 100,000). The main reason for this requirement is that the dynamic in smaller cities differ from larger cities, often because of their geography, smaller pool of resources and deeper reliance on the resourcefulness of their communities. The other reason is simple: City officials and politicians tend to listen and learn from their peers who experience similar challenges and problems compared to their own.
All partner cities will be able to demonstrate at least one good practice specific to their respective cities which will contribute to the learning opportunities in the project.
All partner cities will be willing to offer their cities as case studies for knowledge capitalisation during and after the project.
All partner cities will participate in ‘beta actions’ to test ideas and increase the creative engagement of communities, including their own local entrepreneurs, thereby experimenting with and exploring opportunities for change in their cities.
All partner cities will be committed to actively build a partnership that continues to be a resource and ideas repository after the project.
