The New Leipzig Charter is the key reference document on principles of good urban governance in Europe. It is interlinked with the Urban Agenda for the EU as a novel multi-level governance approach that aims to strengthen the “urban dimension” of EU policies. With the first generation of partnerships of the Urban Agenda for the EU coming to an end, the process of paving the way for an even stronger Urban Agenda has been initiated and advanced under the Trio Presidency of Germany, Portugal and Slovenia. This process will conclude with the adoption of the Ljubljana Agreement at the Informal Ministerial on Urban Development on 26 November 2021.
How can the continuation of the Urban Agenda for the EU contribute to the implementation of the principles of the New Leipzig Charter, and vice versa? How can we bring an urban dimension into EU-policies, such as the “Green Deal”?
The event is aimed at the stakeholders of the European “urban development community” with a strong interest in the EU “urban dimension”. The session will conclude the comprehensive series of seven public web conferences “Cities Fit for Future” on the implementation of the New Leipzig Charter, which started in September 2020. It is organised by the German Association for Housing, Urban and Spatial Development and funded by the German Federal Ministry of the Interior, Building and Community in the context of the National Urban Development Policy.
