URBACT City Festival 2022

Whether you took part, followed online or missed it altogether, here are some sights and sounds from this year’s #URBACTfest.

This year’s URBACT City Festival was once again a celebration of all the hard work and achievements of URBACT cities over the past couple of years – and a real opportunity to share lessons, knowledge and inspiration for ongoing efforts towards ever-more sustainable urban development in Europe!


Check out some of the photos, videos and other online content that captured the energy, dynamism and commitment of participants to European networking and exchange on a whole range of urban development topics… from mobility to agile city leadership… and from digital tools to the circular transition.


Start by watching the following wrap-up video for a flavour of the sights and sounds of this year’s Festival which gathered nearly 500 participants – including over 240 cities – on 14-16 June 2022 in Pantin, Greater Paris, France. An event which set itself the ambitious objective of being the first ever carbon-neutral City Festival, thanks in large part to the efforts of the extraordinary temporary use host venue at La Cité Fertile.
