(21 April 2015) – The URBACT programme has just released four publications dedicated to the ‘new urban economies’, jobs for young people in cities, social innovation in cities, and sustainable regeneration in urban areas.
These publications are part of a capitalisation initiative set by the URBACT programme for 2014–2015 with the objective to present to Europe’s cities existing urban knowledge and good practices.
- “New urban economies: How can cities foster economic development and develop ‘new urban economies’”
- “Job generation for a jobless generation“
- “Social innovation in cities”
- “Sustainable regeneration in urban areas”
These topics have been explored by four URBACT working groups, composed of multidisciplinary stakeholders across Europe such as urban practitioners and experts, representatives from European universities, European programmes and international organisations working on these fields.
