Announcement winners Urban Innovative Actions & Update on Urban Agenda for the EU

October 10, 2018 from 14:30 to 18:00

Join our workshop to learn how cities are testing new ways to tackle local challenges by changing the way policies are designed and implemented at the urban and the European level. To understand what results the Urban Agenda for the EU is delivering, listen to concrete actions of the Urban Agenda partnerships helping cities address different urban challenges. Meet the winners of the third call of the Urban Innovative Actions on climate change, air quality, housing and jobs and skills in the local economy and get ready for the announcement of the next call for proposals.
