Organised as part of the Czech EU Council Presidency 2022 with the Czech Ministry of Regional Development.
The New Leipzig Charter (NLC), endorsed by Ministers responsible for Urban Matters in November 2020, puts forward three dimensions of cities for integrated urban development in Europe: the just, the green and the productive city – complemented by the crosscutting dimension of digitalisation.
