Are you interested in cites of equality, green cities, food, and sustainable tourism? With the start of the Slovene Presidency, an open and informal process was launched to explore new priority themes for the Urban Agenda for the EU (UAEU). As part of this process, the EUKN, Eurocities, and CEMR, with the cooperation of CoR, worked on the first prototype of a Linking Matrix: a tool to validate the relevance of new suggested themes. On 6 October you can join a workshop by the Slovene Presidency.
These proposals and the linking matrix prototype will be presented at the UDG on 28 September. It is expected that a limited number, preferably two, of the proposed themes will be chosen for testing the process and establishing of new UAEU Thematic Partnerships in 2022. Agreed new themes and steps for the next generation UAEU will be included in the Ljubljana Agreement and Working Programme to be adopted at the Informal Ministerial Meeting for Urban Matters on 26 November 2021.
