Organised with the Spanish Ministry of Transport, Mobility and Urban Agenda (MITMA).
Urban regeneration, especially in deprived neighbourhoods, has been recognised as a vital priority for long-lasting sustainable development of cities and a tool in the fight against social inequalities.
Different documents, such as The Urban Agenda for the EU, the New Leipzig Charter, the Toledo Declaration as well as the Cohesion Policy, address this issue with a specified action plan and instruments allowing cities to assume a leading role in designing their urban regeneration strategies in an integrated manner. Adopting a comprehensive perspective to urban and spatial development, this Policy Lab accommodated a knowledge exchange on integrated urban regeneration. The interventions from three different European cities and Spanish experiences set the stage for a fruitful exchange of best practices, providing precious insights to municipal as well as national policymakers. What are the most effective strategies for promoting neighbourhood revitalisation? What is the role of public authorities and how did the introduction of instruments like the ‘neighbourhood managers’ and ‘urban marines’ improve these processes?
This Policy Lab aimed to support the ongoing collaboration of the Spanish Ministry of Transport, Mobility and Urban Agenda (MITMA) with Spanish cities to develop and trial Local Action Plans within the framework of the Spanish Urban Agenda.Read more
