Joint organiser: Czech Ministry of Regional Development
The Czech Principles of Urban Policy (PUP), a strategic document issued in 2010 and renewed in 2017, is undergoing a second update. The aim is to reflect the latest trends in urban development and better align the Principles with key strategic agendas, especially the New Leipzig Charter.
As part of the EUKN’s activities to support the PUP update, this Policy Lab enabled Member States to exchange knowledge and experience on National Urban Policies, as well as various governmental levels to discuss the way ahead for the Czech PUP. The event explored which principles to consider for the PUP update, building on preparatory survey results and informing policy recommendations for the Czech Ministry of Regional Development. In particular, the focus lay on supporting just, green and productive cities in the context of recovery from the COVID-19 pandemic.
