Project Description

Bright future for black towns: reinventing European industrial towns and challenging dominant post-industrial discourses

Project objective is to develop place-specific strategies for industrial towns in
Europe by respecting their strengths, needs and expectations. We are interested in
assets and strengths of case studies leading to new social innovations and enabling
small towns to adapt, to be resilient, and to be sustainable.
Those innovations are the key project outcome and streamlining them into planning
practice is important. The project affects small towns that are trying to adapt
to urban change by understanding of how cities dependent on manufacturing
can thrive in the future and by understanding their economic, cultural and social
dynamics. Research has a strong trans-disciplinary focus involving non-academic
participants
