Promoting citizens engagement in upgrading urban green spaces

The project aims to set up models on how empowered civil eco-conscious groups and top down interventions can mutually reinforce each other to make cities more resilient and healthy, while also reducing the cities’ carbon footprint by empowering local groups as well as the city administration and by matching grass-root ecological initiatives with large scale resource efficiency interventions. In other words the project aims to achieve a paradigm shift towards sustainability in the society of the partner cities by fostering dialog between local governmental level and civil society.

Integrated Action Plans

Within an Action Planning Network, the Integrated Action Plan is a local output, specific to each city. Thus, the local circumstances, as the concrete actions to be carried out in response to the network's sustainable development challenges, are defined by the URBACT Local Group. This core group is composed by a wide range of relevant stakeholders, who have a stake in the addressed challenge and who play an active role in co-designing the plan alongside the project partner. This document is the result of the interplay between the theme, each city's starting point and its individual URBACT journey. It highlights the positive learning experience cities have undertaken, both from a local and a transnational perspective.
