The Leipzig Charter
The URBACT Knowledge Hub brings together good practices from across the EU, with the latest urban trends, to fill the gaps and make sure that the learning is within everyone’s reach. First signed in 2007, the Leipzig Charter promotes the use of ‘integrated urban development’ policy and set out – for the first time in a single EU document – the key principles behind it. More than 20 years later, the context facing European cities has significantly changed. Since 2018 URBACT has participated in the European dialogue process to update the Leipzig Charter. Organised in collaboration with EUROCITIES and UIA, URBACT City Labs drew on on the direct experience of hundreds of cities to input into the New Leipzig Charter signed in 2020 during the German Presidency of the Council of European Union.
