The online platform promoting the Urban Agenda for the EU and all Partnerships is running and ready for use. You can access it at www.urbanagendaforthe.eu. The website offers the opportunity to actively contribute and participate in debates, information exchange and consultations on future policies for different cities in the EU. All stakeholders are invited to register and participate.
The Urban Agenda is initiated by the EU in order to improve the involvement of cities in the policy-making processes in Europe. Cities play a major role in larger EU issues such as the integration of migrants and refugees, urban mobility, urban poverty, circular economy and digitalisation. Partnerships between cities, member states and the European Commission under the umbrella of the Urban Agenda, should enhance better regulation, better funding and better knowledge exchange between different stakeholders. Overall the Urban Agenda aims to improve the quality of life in urban regions within the EU, home to 72% of the EU-28’s population according to Eurostat.
