Track: “Transforming European Cities” – Equitable and inclusive, perspective: NGO and academia
In the last years, numerous global and European strategies, frameworks and policy agendas have been published and agreed which underline the need for transforming urban areas to address the biggest challenges of our time. In order to leave nobody behind, inclusiveness and equity need to be at the centre of the transformation processes. Research and innovation projects can provide a platform to tap upon the transformative potential and local knowledge of civil society actors and urban stakeholders to drive change towards sustainable and livable urban futures.
The session moderated by Margit Noll, Chair of the JPI Urban Europe Management Board will highlight selected cases, local initiatives, projects which aimed at transforming urban areas on a neighbourhood scale and offer good practice on how to achieve inclusive and equitable urban transitions.
