Promoting citizens engagement in upgrading urban green spaces

The project aims to set up models on how empowered civil eco-conscious groups and top down interventions can mutually reinforce each other to make cities more resilient and healthy, while also reducing the cities’ carbon footprint by empowering local groups as well as the city administration and by matching grass-root ecological initiatives with large scale resource efficiency interventions. In other words the project aims to achieve a paradigm shift towards sustainability in the society of the partner cities by fostering dialog between local governmental level and civil society.

Integrated action plans

An Integrated Action Plan (IAP) is a policy instrument that is produced by Action Planning networks within a period of 12 - 14 months after the beginning of their activities. The aim of the IAP is to respond in a concrete way to a urban challenge, which is common to all involved cities. Each partner city develops its own IAP, so all plans are unique in terms of local circumstances, territorial coverage and, most of all, the context in which this tool is proposed to be implemented. The creation and validation of this instrument relies in a collective undertaking, designed to strengthen commitment and to increase the prospect of sustainable delivery. In this sense, every partner city must establish a URBACT Local Group (ULG), in order to gather implicated stakeholders to co-create and participate in this process.Thus, the IAP reflect and integrate all ULG members' knowledge and learning from transnational exchange.
