URBACT’s flagship event – the URBACT City Festival is taking place in Lisbon, on 13-14 September 2018.
How can we make our cities more equal? More welcoming to newcomers? How can we increase the attractiveness of our cities and fight unemployment? Make sure that they are prepared for the climate change and resilient? How can we do all that with less? The questions that the European cities are asking themselves seem to be ever multiplying and the urgency to answer them ever growing.
This is the backdrop of the third edition of the URBACT City Festival. It will bring you the work done in the past 3 years by 20 networks and more than 210 European cities. It will showcase the results designed and tested by these networks, acting as testbeds for smart and innovative solutions for the questions above and many more. It will also put the major challenges of urban development in a wider context – the urban trends that we are observing in Europe and beyond.
