Main policy issue to be addressed in relation to the selected topics
Have you already been involved in an URBACT network?
We are looking for partners that focus on climate adaptation. We are looking for motivated partners to exchange information about trials and experiences in how to build a community and increase awareness and self-responsibility for a healthy and livable environment. Our model to give value on ecosystem principles is not necessarily your solution for an integrated approach. We are interested to hear your solutions. We would prefer to be a project partner, but will consider being lead partner if the partnership calls for this. Although we have no experience with Urbact we have a good subsidy team.
