What's the URBACT Method?
With years of experience, combined with key learnings from different EU cities, URBACT has developed and refined its unique methodology to ensure a more integrated, inclusive and sustainable urban development.
The URBACT Method is based on three key concepts:
Integration Participation Action-Learning.
The combination of these principles enables cities to manage the policy cycle from planning resources and assigning actions, to implementing and following up policies, evaluating the impact and feeding back the lessons learnt. The Toolbox provides supports at each stage of this cycle.
