Supporting integrated approaches to Sustainable Urban Development

Join us in Ljubljana, where we will deliver a capacity building event dedicated to supporting integrated approaches to sustainable urban development (SUD).

If you are looking to build your capacity on integrated, place-based, participatory and cross-sectoral approaches to urban sustainability, then this event is for you!

The objective of the event is to support urban authorities from small and medium cities within less developed and transition regions to build their capacity for developing an integrated, place-based approach to Sustainable Urban Development (SUD).
The event will strive to:

  1. Explore the four main principles of the integrated, place-based approach to urban development: place-based, participatory, multi-level governance, cross-sectoral development.
  2. Discuss innovative practices and approaches in Sustainable Urban Development through case studies.
  3. Build a pipeline of innovative and integrated SUD projects using Cohesion Policy funds: with a focus on local partnership, coordinating the timeline of project lifecycles, linking projects with wider policy objectives in the city and delivering expected results.

Want to know more? Take a look at the indicative agenda.

The two-day event will include plenary sessions, four workshops and study visits. Participants will have the opportunity to complete one full track on place-based, integrated approaches to SUD. Each track will look at the four main principles of SUD (place-based, participatory, multi-level governance, cross-sectoral development) through one specific subtheme of SUD.

Event participation is open to urban authorities, managing authorities and urban practitioners from local stakeholder organisations. Priority for event participation will be given to organisations located in less developed and transition regions (list available here) and small to medium-sized cities (overall population below 500,000 inhabitants). A maximum of two persons per institution may register to attend.

Please note that the event is in English and that no interpretation will be provided.
