SYNCITY shows how urban transformation projects, especially in deprived areas with highly diverse communities, can reach high acceptance by dwellers and have positive consequences for the urban society as such, the economy and the overall co-living in the city.

The city of tomorrow needs enduring participatory processes involving all relevant stakeholders, push innovative competence and operate within the paradigm of sustainability. The case study develops a methodology for urban transformation processes, presenting three feasible proposals for future larger scale urban transformation projects on the long run, and a toolbox for European municipalities to better implement integrative urban transformation processes in the future.
