Organised as part of the French EU Council Presidency 2022 with the French National Agency for Territorial Cohesion (ANCT), in collaboration with ICLEI Europe, URBACT and the OECD.
This Policy Lab series consisted of three events: Just-Green, Just-Digital and Just-Productive City-Making. Building on the four dimensions of the New Leipzig Charter, the French EU Presidency.
The events explored how to create just cities in a green, productive, and digital manner, emphasising the relevance of integrated approaches towards sustainable urban development. Besides being a platform for exchange and learning, The Art of Just-City-Making contributed to the creation of guidelines for policymakers on how to create a ‘just city’.
With experts from Erasmus University, ICLEI and OECD introducing the themes, speakers from national, EU and local levels engaged in comprehensive discussions and gave concrete examples of actions already in place and aiming at just, green, digital and productive cities, as well as opportunities and actions which can, and should still be undertaken.
Sabrina Abdi, from the French National Agency for the cohesion of Territories, presents the French Council Presidency programme on urban matters, including the role of the just dimension of cities.Read more
