    Let’s revitalise forgotten urban spaces for green cities, together!

    Luc Schuiten, Belgian architect, envisages that in 2100 “sustainable development will have become a pleonasm”, and as such, future cities will see new living and working habits, mobility and organisation of human relations and interfaces. Local authorities will play a role in this transformative change, notably by working on infrastructure: abandoned buildings and spaces returning to green spaces, becoming part of the urban net, enabling a pedestrian connexion and infrastructure from one neighbourhood to the other. Notwithstanding the climate benefit of such measures, streets and parks will become places for playful, physical, and artistic activities. Public spaces will become a place for creativity, learning and exchange.

    Aligned with this approach, the URBACT GreenPlace network has decided to act to address the issue of unused, abandoned and forgotten places with green revitalisation and regeneration, involving the local community.
