Fighting urban poverty with innovative solutions: six UIA cities share lessons and experience

October 11, 2018 from 09:30 to 11:00

Six UIA cities are implementing ambitious projects tackling the main causes of poverty, and are testing different but similarly innovative solutions. While Barcelona is evaluating seven basic income models, Lille and Nantes are using the possibilities offered by brownfield sites to introduce new social functions. Birmingham is testing solutions to connect major investments in deprived areas with local assets, while Pozzuoli is investing in abandoned public spaces to be transformed into farmland. The main objectives of this workshop are to share lessons learnt so far, discuss cross-cutting questions and inspire other urban practitioners and policy-makers.
